The Project READS-Parent program presents standards-based, grade-level-specific tools and techniques that parents can use at home with their child(ren).
The program consists of two 2-hour workshop sessions for parents of pre-kindergarten through second grade students. Retired school teachers lead the sessions that not only teach academic skills but also communication and nurturing skills for young learners.
Dr. Maxine Huffman, retired education professor and reading specialist from Indiana University-Purdue University at Fort Wayne, develops the workshop curriculum. The sessions are based on the same Indiana State Standards that classroom teachers present, as well as elements required by “No Child Left Behind.”
Allen County Education Partnership offers grade specific workshops both in the fall and spring.
Class schedules are listed on our calendar link about six weeks in advance. Please call our office at 260.423.6447 to register.
Childcare and light snacks are provided at MOST locations and transportation is available upon request.
Parents that attend both sessions receive family-friendly books, games and materials!
