The Apache Junction Public Library “Fun Van” is getting ready to roll our way once again!
The Fun Van staff is gearing up to bring our community some great programs that we think will benefit our local community.
The Fun Van is a program funded through First Things First. The purpose is to promote literacy in children ages 0-5, by promoting and using the curriculum, Parents as Teachers. It is our desire that parents develop an understanding that they are their children’s first and most important teachers. Many parents today, for a variety of reasons, lack the skills needed to interact effectively with their children. We hope to show them that it is not difficult to develop literacy in their homes. It just takes a little creativity and encouragement. That is what we want to bring to them. Some encouragement and ideas for things they can do with their little ones at home.
Did you know? ….
Children who are read to frequently develop stronger reading skills. Reading to a child from birth has shown he/she has a better chance of being a successful reader when they enter school. Reading aloud can help children identify reading as a pleasurable activity where they can build their vocabulary.
