"Readers are made on the laps of their parents," says Kristy Robertson and Reta Tischner.  Kristy and Reta instructed parents of pre-schoolers during Cradled in Literacy sessions at Salem Elementary. 

Cradled in Literacy is designed to be an interactive learning model.  The program involves parents and caregivers in a variety of learning activities.  These activities encourage parents to reflect on their own learning experiences and their role as their child's first teacher.  The goal of each workshop is to involve parents as active learners and participants.
