Ready for School! is a 10-week curriculum for working with young refugee families. These families often come from countries that do not offer children’s literature or a culture of parents reading to their little ones. Some of the refugee parents have limited English language skills and very few homes have children’s books in English.
The Ready for School! curriculum targets the following skill areas:
- Reading, language, and reasoning
Children and parents meet in a group setting one day a week for activities and instruction. Each week they are sent home with a new book, a bag of materials, and new skills to practice.
