Accelerated Facilitator Training: Parent Workshop on Early Reading Skills

In this highly-interactive workshop, attendees will learn how to teach parents the important skills their child needs to be a super reader- hearing the sounds, knowing the letters, and reading smoothly. Presented by Read by 4th, this double-length workshop will prepare participants to facilitate their own parent workshops.

Attendees will have lots of time to explore games and activities that they can share with parents to encourage literacy skills at home. Attendees will also learn how to access materials to present their own Parent Workshop on Early Reading Skills from the PowerPoint presentation and videos to all of the activities and take-home materials for parents.

By the end of this double-length workshop, attendees will:

  1. understand the key skills an early reader needs (Phonological Awareness, K-3 Phonics, Sight Words and Read by 4th)
  2. have experience with the materials and activities to present their own workshop
  3. have the ability to help parents feel empowered to speak with their child’s teacher about reading skills.

Space is limited for this special workshop — registration is required!
