Bethune-Bowman Elementary Save the Children Early Steps to School Success conducted its monthly Parent Group meeting on Wednesday, April 27, 2017, Theme for the meeting was “On the Move with Literacy”.

Children are developing early literacy/reading skills even before they can read. Parent participation is critical to helping children develop early literacy skills. We know children develop a love of books and reading when parents read stories to them, cuddle with them during reading time, and talk with their children about the books they read together. Young children explore books and reading in many ways: by listening, touching, looking and playing.

During the meeting, parents along with their child worked together on homemade books made from cereal and other food boxes. They also made T-shirt Tote Bags from old t-shirts to carry their books. Our guest speaker was Mrs. Darrow Riley, Save the Children Afterschool Coordinator. We ended the evening with door prizes, book of the month-“Pete’s A Pizza” and refreshments.

Ms. Tuisha Glover-Early Childhood Coordinator is currently enrolling families in the Bowman area ages pre-birth to 3 years of age. For more information, you can email Tuisha.glover@ocsd5.net or call (803) 533-6371 ext. 7518.
