#LearnwithHomer Back-to-School Twitter Party {PRIZES!}

During the summer, the focus for the girls is to be active, make new friends, learn new sports and travel. The one thing that doesn’t change is reading. Every night before the girls go to sleep, each of them have at least a half hour of reading, by themselves, with a grown-up or a combination of the two. We want to make sure that they don’t fall in to the “Summer Slide”, which is when children who do not read over the summer, lose more than two months of reading achievement.

If you’re preparing to send someone back to school, or providing support for a young reader (or pre-reader!), join me, Learn with Homer, Sarah from The Stroller Ballet, and Lisa from Mom a La Mode next Wednesday at the #LearnwithHomer Twitter Party! We’ll be discussing how to encourage a love of reading, and prepare for “back to school”. And, of course, there will be prizes!

In the meantime check out Learn With Homer. Learn with Homer builds reading skills, vocabulary, and general knowledge for children aged 3-6. It’s an entire reading program, designed by top literacy experts.

So join us!
