Prekindergarten and kindergarten parents and guardians, would you like to know how to help your children develop their love of reading?
Join our Media Specialist, Mrs. Albee, and our Literacy Specialist, Mrs. Leichliter, to see students engaged in a read aloud.
Mrs. Albee will show how to increase children’s vocabulary knowledge, make connections, and ask questions to facilitate understanding while reading to a class.
Mrs. Leichliter will answer parent questions, discuss what was seen, and provide take-home materials to help you raise readers.
Parents are welcome to bring younger children with them to this event. Parents will be responsible for monitoring their younger children.
Please use this sign up genius to RSVP. Parents are welcome to sign up for any slot, it does not need to be your child's class. If your child is not in the class you have signed up for, they will not be pulled from other specials. You will see the read aloud with the students who are in media at that time.
