The Ready To Learn Parenting Workshop is also a great resource for families!  Our workshop is held right after the ASPIRE Parent Group and families are welcome to attend!  The topic this month was: Shared Reading: Tools to Bring Literacy to Life.  These parenting workshops focus on interacting with your children to help them progress in their reading abilities. Here are some activities you can do with your child to bring literacy to life:
  • Ask your child to make predictions of what will happen next
  • Find a recipe and follow the instructions to cook dinner together
  • Make your own book
  • Put on a puppet show
  • Read aloud to your children
