What is the Ready to Learn workshop and how does it help my Child?
Sadly, many children in the U.S. go into Kindergaden without the necessary knowledge to succeed and struggle for years to catch up to the other students. In this short clip, Stephanie Anderson explains what an amazing tool the Ready 2 Learn workshops are for parents and caregivers.
The twelve KBYU Eleven Ready 2 Learn workshops teach parents and caregivers fun and easy ways to help children enter school with the essential skills and knowledge they need to be ready to learn. KBYU Eleven helps children and parents with three related services:
1. Provides TV programs that are quality educational television. Children who consistently watch these programs enter school better prepared to learn, and once in school they preform at a higher level.
2. A safe and fun online environment. RTL has engaging activities, games, and videos that teach and reinforce key skills and concepts.
3. Online video workshops that will inform how children develop and demonstrate how to combine media with reading and hands-on activities to greatly enhance children's learning.
