Online Extension Extras Parenting Hour ABC’s of Early Literacy

May 28 @ 8:00 pm - 9:30 pm

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 an online series of parenting workshops offered at no cost to you  that provides guidance for parents of young children as they navigate the challenges, joys, and concerns of parenting.

Certificates for participation are provided upon completion of the class.
