Grundy County Extension & Outreach, in partnership with Kling Memorial Library, is offering a Linking Literacy to Food class to be held at Kling Memorial Library January 23, 2014 from 6:30-8:30 p.m. Daycare providers will earn 2 clock hours credit for child care license renewal. Class is open to anyone interested in learning about early reading and language development, not limited to daycare providers.
Early reading and language development helps kids be school ready and greatly increases their chance for academic success. A great way to introduce literacy is to link reading to food! This class will share well-loved children's books and food related activities to use with children. Learn new ways to connect with children as we explore literacy strategies to use with great books including: Bread and Jam for Frances, Growing Vegetable Soup, Pancakes, Pancakes, No More Germs Please, Everyone Brings Noodles, Apples, Apples, Apples and Everyone Cooks Rice.
