Engaging Families in Children’s Literacy Development workshops offer practical and effective resources with videos, hands-on activities, and step-by-step support for involving families in their children’s literacy growth.

This innovative research-based workshop kit prepares program facilitators to lead a series of five 90-minute sessions that demonstrate easy, practical ways for families to read, write, draw, and talk with children.

Families will learn to engage their children with motivating and fun guided language and literacy activities that address core literacy areas:

  • Concepts of Print
  • Writing
  • Phonological Awareness
  • Letter-Sound Knowledge
  • Comprehension
  • Oral Language

What it Includes

  • Workshop Leader’s Guide
  • DVD with videos
  • CD with reproducible forms and handouts
  • Beyond Bedtime Stories, Second Edition
  • Five high-interest books

Our celebration of reading must involve the ongoing mission to give all children the opportunity to read and to become lifelong readers.
