Every Child Ready to Read Workshop at Scotch Plains Public Library
Wednesday, October 16, 2013 • 10:07pm
The Scotch Plains Public Library has an exciting new workshop designed to help get Every Child Ready to Read®. Research shows that children who develop essential language and other early literacy skills before they start kindergarten become better readers. Children who do not know these skills when they begin school have a more difficult time learning to read.
The Children’s Services staff will present a free workshop for parents and caregivers on Monday, October 28th at 7:00 pm. The workshop will demonstrate how parents can use five familiar and easy-to-use practices to develop language and other early literacy skills in children from birth to age five.
The Every Child Ready to Read® workshop explains why the skills are so important, demonstrates how to help children learn the skills, provides titles of high-interest books that are age appropriate, and sends parents and caregivers home with early literacy activities they can incorporate into their family’s daily routine.
Every Child Ready to Read® @ your library® was developed by the Association for Library Service to Children (ALSC) and the Public Library Association (PLA), divisions of the American Library Association, in conjunction with national reading and education experts.
This program is free and open to all interested participants. Attendees are encouraged to register through the library’s website: http://www.scotlib.org or by phone: 908-322-5007, x.209 or e-mail email@example.com .
The Scotch Plains Library is located at 1927 Bartle Avenue, one block from Park Avenue in the center of town.
