Parents Connecting with Pre-K Through Literacy Webinar
This recorded webinar was created from our Interactive Read-Aloud for Preschool (HEO0265) course. It focuses on building the literacy skills of children as parents build literacy enrichment in their homes. This will lead to a stronger partnership between parents and teachers as they focus on shared goals related to literacy for children three to five years old.
