Last week we had our last Families For Literacy (FFL) Book Club of 2016. This program is designed for young families to work on pre-literacy skills and gain consistent exposure to literacy. Focusing on early intervention, our youngest children work side-by-side with their parent(s), honing their gross/fine motor skills, language skills and, of course, their love of reading.
Twelve parents and children took part in Book Club. We sang and moved together, while listening to holiday songs. We also read a book together about a cat’s favorite colors. Parents and children sat side by side when reading the book and worked together creating open-ended
holiday themed scenes on card stock. After reading and crafting, children and parents played together with skill-based games that focused on matching and sorting.
We're looking forward to more great books, crafts and experiences in 2017 Book Club!
