Every Child Ready to Read 2

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

The Every Child Ready to Read@ your library program provides youth librarians, early childhood specialists, preschool teachers, childcare providers, and most especially, caregivers, the research-based practices that can help young children (ages zero - five years old) develop the skills they need to be successful when learning to read. Now in its 2nd edition, this program integrates the six pre-literacy skills from the 1st edition (Print Awareness, Print Motivation, Letter Knowledge, Vocabulary, Narrative Skills, and Phonological Awareness) with the five behaviors (Singing, Talking, Reading, Writing, and Playing) and emphasizes them as activities in which children should engage every day. As our communities become more diverse, we are pleased that ECRR2 is now offered in Spanish, with other languages being added soon. We will also talk about presenting this program to our Spanish-speaking customers. Our goal is to do all of this while making it fun for everyone involved!!!
