Studies show that parental involvement is highly correlated with student success, but convincing a reluctant, struggling, or discouraged reader to read outside of the school day is often difficult. In this highly practical session, join Terry Dobson and Heather Baptie as they show how you can help eliminate homework battles with a blend of traditional and digital tools. They will share a "tradigital" tool box of easy-to-implement strategies and resources can be used at home or at school to build confidence, develop literacy skills, and foster a love of reading.

So many ideas and sources were given! I loved the reading quotes that would make awesome book nook captions: "Fill your house with stacks of books, in all the crannies and all the nooks." by Dr. Seuss and "There is not app to replace your lap!" and "2 books before bed from birth to 5 makes 3500 stories come alive." I am glad they stressed reading to your child even after they become a reader! My oldest son, who is 27, still enjoys me reading a book out loud as we travel in the car on long distance trips! Excellent webinar!
