Encouraging parents to participate in their child’s learning is critical for their four-year-old’s success in kindergarten. This edWebinar will provide educators of four-year-old children avenues to engage families in preparing their child for kindergarten.
Alison Pepper, Author and National ECE Consultant, will introduce ways for you to support families by providing them with fun, innovative activities to send home with parents and guardians of children who will be attending kindergarten soon. Alison’s presentation will include:
- A system for separating the letters and activities into six learning domains, that is supported by research and created with everyday materials found in the home
- An introduction to the learning domains along with examples of activities that can be done at home to extend a child’s learning experience
- An overview of materials prepared especially to support your efforts in family engagement beyond school-based events
Alison will field your questions after her presentation. Teachers and educational directors of four-year-old children are invited to this live, interactive event. Join us to learn how to help families prepare their preschoolers for kindergarten success.
