In an effort to better engage families this school year, Parkway Elementary, of St. Lucie County Schools hosted a family literacy workshop, called REaD Carpet Ready. This fun, interactive family workshop engaged K-5 parents and their children in a 1.5-hour, red-carpet-themed training program. Parents learned easy-to-implement reading strategies to support their child’s literacy development at home.
REaD Carpet Ready workshop allowed families to enter the world of Hollywood celebrities, complete with red carpet, paparazzi and voting on nominees for best-dressed “star”, all while learning how to incorporate an extra 20 minutes of reading into their busy lives.
REaD Carpet Ready family workshop is part of the Just Take 20 campaign that launched across the state of Florida during the 2015/2016 school year.
