October Early Literacy Workshops for Parents at Cedar Mill & Bethany

Wanna get your kids ready to read? They need more than the ABCs.

Getting your kids ready to read is also known as early literacy. Early literacy is what children know about reading and writing before they learn to read and write.

October is Early Literacy Month at Cedar Mill Community Library and Cedar Mill Bethany. They are offering early literacy workshops for parents of children younger than five years old.

The workshops will focus on the six early literacy skills that are vital for kids before they learn to read. They will include current research on the brain, tips for sharing and choosing books for little ones, activities to help develop the six literacy skills, information packets, and most of all, how to keep this fun for both you and your kids.Workshops are for adults only. No registration required. For more information, call the Youth Services Desk 503-644-0043 ext 112.

Cedar Mill Library @ Bethany is offering a Playful Early Literacy Class for Parents of children 0-5 years. Learn 25 fun things you and your child can do throughout the day that support pre-reading skills. Workshop is for adults only. No registration required.
