Resources for Growing a Reader from Frisco Public Library's Early Literacy Day

If you haven't seen the Grow a Reader post on the ALSC blog about early literacy training days, it is interesting. Even better is this wealth of materials linked to at the bottom of the post which includes the handouts from the Early Literacy Day from the Frisco Public Library:

There are some scalable ideas to implement in a small library or a large one about play, STEM-based learning for young children, enhancing talk with intentional activities, and storytime activities to enhance school readiness.

The librarians at Frisco Public Library have also put together a set of three online early literacy classes geared towards parents and caregivers of Babies (Birth to 17 months), Toddlers and 2s (18 months to 2 years), and 3-5s (3 to 5 years). The classes can be taken by anyone, do not require a library card, and may count towards continuing education credit for childcare providers. Find those courses and more information HERE.
