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 this program are to increase:
- Oral language skills by expanding phonemic awareness through listening activities and the ability to produce comparable sounds
- Pre-emergent reading skills by predicting story outcomes
- Print awareness
- 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.
