Family Engagement Workshops
Literacy Comes Alive!
In this exciting workshop, we show parents how to take any book and “make it come alive”. Parents and their children listen to a read aloud book, watch a short video clip and then do several hands-on activities at centers all based on the book. The activities include cooking, math skills, literacy skills, color recognition and more.
Ready for School, Ready for Fun!
In this informative workshop we show parents how to make inexpensive, “educational” activities they can do at home with their children. Using PBS KIDS for Parents, we share great resources on child development, age-appropriate practices, and other valuable tools.
An engaging video, a read aloud, and fun hands-on activities are integrated into the financial literacy workshops. Lessons include identifying coins, their attributes, and their values. Children will explore the concept of saving, spending, and donating money.
