2017-2018 Every Child Ready to Read application

Application to host Every Child Ready to Read Family Workshops in 2017-2018

Every Child Ready to Read (ECRTR) Family Workshop is a series of three 45-minute sessions that involve young children and their parents in learning about early literacy practices that help prepare children to be successful in school. Early literacy practices are highlighted and parents have a chance to practice them with their child. Families also get a corresponding book/resource to keep and use with their child. Fun interactive activities, practical tips, and resources are shared during each session. Materials for families and your library are available from the Read to Me program at no cost to your library. Workshop scripts in English and Spanish and training are also available from the Read to Me program.
