January 19: 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.
