When Families Read Together, Learning Happens!
In March 2017, thousands of schools will transform their National Reading Month event into a PTA Family Reading Experience – an interactive event that engages the whole family in reading activities.
Parents take part in the fun with their kids and leave the event with a deeper understanding of the simple ways they can support the core skills of literacy.
Parents will learn how to support these core skills of literacy:
