Raising Young Readers

Reading proficiency at third grade is a good indicator of future academic success for children. Raising Young Readers helps equip adults with knowledge and skills to help children build their reading skills, helping make the connection between learning to read and achieving academic goals and future success. This workshop will help participants understand the importance of children reading at grade level by the end of third grade, understand the Common Core standards for English Language Arts, gain skills to create and provide literacy rich environments for the children in their care, and receive a variety of resources that support literacy development.

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.
