Reading 101

Thank you so much to everyone who came out to Dr. Cameron’s presentation on Reading 101.  Thank you also to Dr. Cameron for her informative presentation.  It was inspiring and helped us to view the process of reading in a more holistic and supportive way.

Parents wrote: “Last night we had the honour of welcoming Dr  Linda Cameron to share her wealth of knowledge and expertise in the area of “children’s literacy “.  It was a very informative and engaging presentation and we learned a lot about the significance of literacy at home. We would like to share with you some of the strategies she gave us to engage our children at home:

1.Immersion: make your home a literate place

2.Modelling/demonstrations

3.Provide time for literacy experiences

4.Provide tools-lots of different kinds of texts

5.Talk about texts

6.Support (not criticism)

7.Celebrate literate behaviour!!!
We hope to have her come and speak to us again soon!”
