With the beginning of a new school year just around the corner, we want to offer some back-to-school tips to prepare your child for the transition. It is so important to integrate the skills your child has picked up (or will be picking up) at school into activities at home so they may benefit from the continued practice. Doing crafts with your child can give them a chance to work on their cutting and pasting skills, handwriting, or coloring inside the lines. And of course, keep up on the reading - 20 minutes a day! - and practicing the alphabet. Check out the links below, as well as those listed on the sidebar, for some ideas to give your child a head start on the school year.
In other news - the Reading Railroad Train Station Literacy Center wrapped up its summer schedule last Monday with an end of summer Hawaiian Luau. The Train Station will be closed the next two Mondays in preparation for the school schedule. We will be back in action August 16th for a Back-to-School themed Literacy Center held from 1-6PM at the Logansport library. Mark your calendars and come out to join us in kicking off the school year.
