Family life plays an important role in the development of the literacy skills of its members. Multigenerational programs offers flexibility in staffing and program offerings as well as opportunities to promote family based literacy-building skills.

 

In this interactive webinar program, Jill Burket Ragase will give you a variety of tools that you will be able to use to:

 

·       Select books, activities, and storytelling methods that will engage a wide-age range of children and their parents.

·       Incorporate highly appealing songs, poems, and movement activities that work for group participation

·       Strategies to create and deliver intergenerational programs that allow children to continue learning and skill building beyond storytime

It is not always practical or feasible to create age-specific programs in a given setting and in our fast paced society. Families seek out inclusive programming opportunities to engage all members. Whatever the reason, multigenerational programming is on the rise and relies heavily on a flexible approach and adaptable books and activities.
