REL Webinar: Supporting Your Child’s Reading at Home
Join REL Southeast for a webinar that introduces families to the “Supporting Your Child’s Reading at Home” resources. These resources, for children in kindergarten through 3rd grade, are drawn from research on best practices for helping children learn to read. Webinar participants will receive an overview of the components of the resources and a virtual walk-through of the website containing the resources. Participants will learn how to use these research-based resources with their children at home and will be given the opportunity to ask questions.
