: Early reading and language development helps kids be "school ready" and greatly increases their chance for academic success. A great way to introduce literacy is to link reading to food! This class will share well-loved children's books and food related activities to use with children, along with physical activities too. Learn new ways to connect with children as we explore literacy strategies to use with great books including: Bread and Jam for Frances, Growing Vegetable Soup, Pancakes, Pancakes and No More Germs Please, to name a few.
