Grandfamily Resource Center presents Philly Families Read Together, a free virtual program that helps grandparents who are raising their grandchildren learn ways to advance and enrich the development of literacy in their younger grandchildren, ages 3-8.
Join our virtual workshop to:
- Connect with other grandparents.
- Get free children’s books for your home library.
- Help your grandchild build strong reading, writing, speaking, and listening skills.
- Learn to use text, email, Zoom, and other popular apps (tablets provided for training).
The 18-week virtual program encourages grandparents to be Literacy Champions. Participants build connections with one another while learning how to foster reading, writing, speaking, and listening skills in children. We focus on three themes:
Weeks 1-6: Literacy at Home
Weeks 7-12: Literacy at School
Weeks 13-18: Literacy in the Community
Time: Wednesdays, 9:00-11:00 AM
