Better with Books - Reading workshop for parents

Dear parents and carers,

We are pleased to announce a reading workshop that is being held at both the Forum Library and Longsight Library run by Family Learning.

Below is some information about the workshops.

'Better with Books' workshops are run by Family Learning at Forum Library on two separate evenings to help parents get children reading and enjoying books. The first workshop is all about enjoying sharing books with children. Parents don't need to be an expert reader and their child doesn't need to be reading yet. This one is all about enjoyment of books, how to make it fun and interesting and helping children develop a love of books. It’s ideal for parents with children between ages 2- 5 yrs. There will be group discussion sharing experiences and ideas and handouts giving advice and tips on good book sharing techniques and choosing books.

The second workshop is aimed at parents and carers with children who are learning to read at school. This session will go through ways of helping children work out new words as well as tips and advice on how to make the experience a positive one for both parent and child. It’s ideal for parents with children in Reception, Year 1 and Year 2. There will be group discussion sharing experiences and ideas and handouts giving advice and tips on helping children with reading.
