Literacy Parent Education Event - Book Conversation: Raising Lifelong Readers
Tuesday, November 8 9:00-10:00 a.m. Marin Horizon Library
Join us for our next literacy parent education event, led by our Kindergarten Teacher and Literacy Specialist, Moriah Geller: a book conversation and Q&A session anchored in Daniel Willingham’s Raising Kids Who Read. This event is relevant for parents of toddlers through middle schoolers.
At this event, you will:
Explore the elements of decoding, comprehension, and motivation from a cognitive psychology lens in infants through adolescents
Gain perspective about the literacy learning that takes place at each developmental stage and learn about tips for supporting skill development at home
Learn about practical, research-based, and developmentally-appropriate ways to establish a love of reading among children from birth through adolescence
While reading the book in advance of the event is encouraged, please join us even if you have not finished (or started!) the book.
If the cost of the book is a barrier to participating, please let us know and we will provide your family with a copy.
