The First Teacher program, a local nonprofit organization provided by Parenting Matters Foundation that offers resources for parents of young children, has another set of online parent Zoom sessions set for September.
These events, scheduled for 10 a.m. on Mondays, offer an opportunity for parents/caregivers/guardians to get information on different parenting topics and young children to hear a story read aloud to them virtually by guest readers. During the Zoom sessions, participants may type in questions using the chat feature.
To close out August, First Teacher offers a Zoom with preschool teacher Kim Rosales of Great Futures Preschool. Joined by her Labrador retriever Hadley, Rosales will read aloud and talk about training service dogs.
On Sept. 14, physical therapist Cherry Bibler will read aloud and demonstrate some stretches and poses to do with children that help promote flexibility.
On Sept. 21, Stephanie Grotzke-Nash, a Helen Haller Elementary kindergarten teacher, will read aloud and talk about preparing children for kindergarten.
On Sept. 28, Shanna Crutchfield, community outreach spokesperson for Vanir, will read aloud with some very special guests and talk about sibling rivalry.
