Preschool Playschool...Here Comes the ABCs!

Our second week of Parent Child Workshop was all about literacy and engaging little ones. We had two professionals today, Youth Services Coordinator Rachee Fagg and Master Storyteller, Carla Wiley.  For Preschool Playschool we invited children and their caregivers to explore a variety of activities to help children get ready to read.

Activities included Chicka Chicka Boom Boom and a tree for the children to send letters climbing, magnetic letters to spell words, an Alphabet Walk in which children searched for letters through environmental print, rhyming games, fishing for letters and free books courtesy of the Book Bank and The Pennsylvania African American Library Association.
