LeapFrog’s reading expert, Dr. Carolyn Jaynes—a former classroom teacher and University Professor of Education—will be our host. Carolyn will be dishing up tips to get kids reading more often, and loving to read.
As you may know, the 2007 National Reading Report Card reported that two-thirds of US 4th-graders lack reading proficiency, and the later the problem is addressed, the harder time a child has catching up. So early skill-building is key. And in fact, results released just this week indicate that the problem is actually worsening, with students having made no improvement in reading proficiency, for the first time since 2003.
LeapFrog invites you to be a part of the conversation that will aid you in learning new tips and sharing some of your own. Here are the event details:
