November is National Family Engagement Month and the SAReads team celebrated accordingly! Our Family Engagement Program conducted three Read-Aloud Workshops at elementary campuses across Southwest ISD, helping parents develop their child’s vocabulary, reading fluency and comprehension. In addition, every child who attended left with new books for their at-home libraries.
SAReads seeks to encourage family involvement, as parents serve as their child’s first teacher and are instrumental to their future academic success. The Family Engagement Program also offers workshops on preventing the “summer slide,” hosts a field trip to the San Antonio Book Festival and participates in special events at the San Antonio Botanical Garden. Watch this space for announcements on future partnerships designed to promote family literacy involvement.
