Falling in Love with Reading: A Caregiver’s Role Webinar
We all know that falling in love with reading at a young age sets kids up for a lifetime of learning, but how on earth can we get them to develop this kind of joy outside of the classroom? With video games and TikTok fiercely competing for their attention, students need caregivers’ support more than ever to build passion for reading after school hours.
In our Falling in Love with Reading: A Caregiver’s Role webinar, we’ll discuss the job of the caregiver in creating a culture of reading joy at home. We’ll hear from Susannah Richards, associate professor of education and children’s literature expert, on how families can seize natural opportunities to encourage love of reading, chat with some caregivers to support what’s going on with their kids’ reading, and see read aloud in action that promotes authentic excitement.
As caregivers, you’ll hopefully walk away with great ideas for building love of reading at home — and with the confidence to do so!
