Great Falls Public Library is offering workshops for parents and other caregivers, along with their children from birth to age five, to demonstrate how to use these practices.

If you have children younger than five years old, then we have an exciting new workshop for you. We focus on what parents can do to help children get ready to read. You will learn how to use simple but fun activities to develop important pre-reading skills, and you will see how easy it is to make them part of everyday routines. Here is a program schedule.
WORKSHOP DATES AND TIMES
· Friday, September 20; 5:00pm to 6:30pm in the Cordingley Room
· Tuesday, October 22; 11:00am to 12:30pm in the Cordingley Room
· Saturday, November 16; 3:00pm to 4:30pm in the Cordingley Room
Parents can give children a tremendous advantage in school and in life by helping prepare them for reading success
· Parents know their children best and can help them learn in ways and at times that are easiest for them.
· Young children have short attention spans. Parents and caregivers can engage children in language and literacy activities for short bits of time throughout the day.
· Parents are tremendous role models–children are more likely to want to read if they see that their parents value and enjoy reading.
· Children learn best by doing—and they love doing things with their parents.
