There's just a week left to celebrate March into Literacy Month, and Leapfrog is sending the month off with a bang! They're hosting their first-ever Literacy Luncheon Twitter Party, next Wednesday, March 31, from 10-11 AM PDT. LeapFrog’s reading expert, Dr. Carolyn Jaynes—a former classroom teacher and University Professor of Education—will host. She'll be sharing tips to get kids reading more often, and loving to read.
Leapfrog is inviting everyone to join the conversation, learn some great early literacy tips, and share some of their own. Plus, you'll get a chance to win one of five Tag Readers! I'm going, are you?
Here's some more information about the event:
