Read Together Bedtime Stories to Air on Pawling Public Radio

book plant2Parents who participated in our Read Together workshops are using some new ideas to build important early literacy skills with their children. One parent wrote,

“I learned some great techniques to help get my daughter excited about writing and reading- also some specific ideas to better engage her in both these efforts. I feel like I have more tools to work with to keep her engaged- and all are very simple and don’t really require spending money!”

We hope to present more of these workshops in the future, but in the meantime, Pawling Public Radio is gearing up to provide families with a Read Together literacy program called Sleepy Time Tales.  Parents and teachers have recorded stories for the whole family to listen to together.  Sleepy Time Tales will air on Pawling Public Radio Tuesdays and Saturdays at 7:30 pm beginning July 15th.  Tune in with your child to hear friends, and maybe a favorite teacher, reading on the radio.  Visit Pawling Public Radio for more details.
