SIPI practicum students hosted a literacy night for YDI Head Start parents

SIPI practicum students hosted a literacy night for YDI Head Start parents on November 26, 2013. Over 20 parents participated. Parents worked with teachers and practicum students to create picture books. Families adapted well loved books from the classroom to make them more reflective of local culture. YDI parent Stacie Barney reported that her daughter responded well to the book and added a few more words to her vocabulary. The family continues to read the book at home.
