Third Grade Reading Café (3G)

3G cafes are designed to give parents valuable skills and information that they can use to help build early literacy skills in their children, from pre-birth to 3rd grade, as well as educating parents about Michigan's Third Grade Reading Law, and how you can advocate for your child's literacy education.

We're starting our next 3G discussion series: Linking Literacy and Social-Emotional Learning 

Dr. Kimberly Leverette will continue our conversation on Social-Emotional Learning (SEL), and share books and resources that parents can use with their children to have discussions and support SEL at home.

Wednesday, Sept 15th, Sept 22nd, and Oct 13th at 2:00PM ET
