Join us for a Parent Workshop on Conversational Reading with literacy and language arts expert Diane Frankenstein.
In our hectic schedules and media saturated world, reading with our children and talking with them about what matters, is more important than ever before.
Books help to jump start conversations that are important to children. In this workshop, you will discover a different conversational experience from the Q&A that make up most conversations – one in which questions get children thinking and speculating, developing their capacity for empathy, compassion and perspective.
Taught this way, reading promotes lifelong love of learning and fosters curious, creative adults – crucial qualities for success in today’s world.
“Conversation is key to literacy. When children engage in a conversation about their thoughts and feelings about a book, their reading experience improves dramatically – and their skills follow,” Diane Frankenstein, author of Reading Together: Everything You Need to Know to Raise a Child Who Loves to Read.
When: Monday March 13th, 8:30-10:30am, Library Pit
