Storytime Literacy Program
EPIC’s family Storytime Literacy program is for families (parents and children) focused on developing literacy skills, incorporating lessons based on universally accepted teaching methods into a number of themed interactive experiences.
The overriding objectives of the program are to:
- Increase oral language skills by increasing phonemic awareness through listening activities and increasing ability to produce comparable sounds;
- Increase pre-emergent reading skills by predicting story outcomes; increasing print awareness; and increasing attention span
In addition to the literacy component, EPIC selects themes so the children are learning and experiencing special life lessons during the Storytime events.
