The ABC’s of Early Literacy

Early literacy skills are critical to a child’s early development.  Parents and caregivers can give young children a jump start on reading by helping them to develop valuable pre-reading skills that prepare them for learning to read. This workshop will help participants understand the importance of reading on grade level by 3rd grade, the components of emergent literacy and learn simple ways to help children acquire these skills through playing, singing, listening, talking and reading.

Extension Extras Parenting Hour is a free online series of parenting workshops that provides guidance for parents of young children as they navigate the joys, challenges and concerns of parenting.

Certificates for participation are provided upon completion of the class.

Participants have the option to attend and actively participate via computer, or an app on a tablet or smartphone. Attendees can also listen to the presentation via phone (by calling in). Those who choose to call in must contact the instructor for instructions on how to be eligible for a certificate.

If multiple people in the same location want to participate in the webinar and need certificates, they have to join the webinar separately or contact the instructor for special instructions to each receive a certificate.
