Founder’s Talk: How to Raise a Reader

Founder’s Talk: How to Raise a Reader

Date: Saturday, 8 November 2014
Time: 1.30pm-2.30pm
Venue: LiteracyPlus Centre

When will my child learn to read? My child doesn’t seem interested in books at all. How do I get him or her interested? I’ve tried everything and my child still refuses to read – what can I do? These questions were answered at our recent Parent Talk held during our Open House in November 2014.

Parents found out why choice of books is important and learnt about the different genres of books that interest various age groups. Our founder, Mrs June Imada Lee, shared techniques to engage children in reading, how parents may develop oral and reading comprehension skills as they read with their child and other practical tips to nurture their child’s love for reading!

Making a Seamless Transition into Primary One

On 27 August, LiteracyPlus held a workshop for parents whose children are in K2 in 2011. Parents learnt about the STELLAR programme and how they could support their child as he/she made the transition into Primary One.

The Q&A session was popular, with many parents raising questions ranging from what was expected of children in Primary One, to reading/writing abilities and if “giftedness” could be trained.

Check out the photos from our event:
