Reading Toolbox for Parents
Sunday, May 5, 2019 @ 3:00 pm
225 NE 59th Street, Miami, FL 33137 United States
Lucrece Louisdhon-Louinis, an expert in children and parent literacy, will teach parents how to engage in a routine of book sharing with their children, from birth to age 8, to foster healthy brain development, healthy relationships, a love for reading, and the literacy skills essential to school success. In this workshop, parents will learn specific hands-on strategies to bring language to life for children through proven developmentally appropriate activities. They will walk away with a “toolbox” of activity ideas and literacy games to use with their child. Lucrece will address concerns specific to the Haitian community: How can Creole-speaking parents assist their children in becoming skilled readers in an English-speaking world? Should children be introduced to multi-lingual stories? How can traditional Haitian folktales help develop vocabulary in both English and Haitian Creole? Each family will receive free brooks to help them implement the book sharing strategies at home. (in Creole)
