Making the most of your read Aloud - Molly Ness
As schools are closed because of the COVID19 pandemic, more and more parents are reading aloud to children at home. But what should we read, and what are the best ways to build literacy skills while reading aloud? This webinar will provide parents / caregivers approachable and immediately applicable ways to make the most of reading aloud. This webinar aims to empower parents to feel more confident in making storytime more child-centered, richer in language and literacy development, and more enjoyable for all. Molly Ness is a literacy researcher and teacher educator at Fordham University. In 2020, she joined the faculty of the Windward Institute. She is the creator of the End Book Deserts podcast, and her fourth book is due out in July 2020 with Corwin Press.
