Working Together to Develop Early Literacy Skills (Infant/Toddler)

While infants and toddlers aren’t ready to read just yet, parents and caregivers can learn and practice ways to help children develop a strong foundation for important literacy skills. This workshop will help participants understand the importance of reading on grade level by 3rd grade, learn and understand the components of early literacy such as experiential writing, communicating, vocabulary, and reading and rhyme with infants and toddlers, learn to detect the signs of early literacy difficulties and receive resources to support early 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.
