Families Reading Every Day (FRED) program May 3-30, 2020
Families Reading Every Day, or “FRED” as we like to call it, is a fun and effective way to strengthen family bonds and promote literacy development by encouraging families to focus on reading together for 4 weeks. FRED is for adults with kids of all ages! All it takes is a commitment to spend time reading together.
The goal is 15 minutes a day for the first 2 weeks, and 30 minutes a day for the next 2 weeks but it could be more depending on the child’s age and the adults involved.
