Motheread is a family literacy program. Parents improve their reading and storytelling skills while they enjoy reading and discussing themes in children's books and other literature. Participants invest time and effort in their own skill development, with support from other adults, with an aim toward improving their relationships with their children.
The program includes:
groups led by a certified facilitator at the Anson County Partnership for Children facility in Wadesboro;
activities that promote the use of spoken and written language to explore everyday experiences and encourage vocabulary development; and
encouragement to hold or sit close to their children and engage them in the story-reading process through the use of props, discussion questions, and story related activities, songs, and games.
