Rise & Shine 2013: The Multiple Intelligences of Reading & Writing - Dr Thomas Armstrong

I am pleased to share that the Rise & Shine Expo 2013 workshops for parents, educators and caregivers are now open for registration!

You can click on the picture below to see the talks and seminars at a glance, and read more about fees and signing up here.

The Rise & Shine Expo 2013 will be featuring more than 120 premium brands offering great deals for parents, and there will also be contests, performances and booth activities for families.

In the next few weeks, I will be writing more about the Expo, including information about workshops that I am personally interested in. There will be free tickets to be won in some of these posts I write (including this one, see below), so do keep a look out for them!

Today, I would like to highlight this programme:

Date/Time: 28 September 2.30-4pm
Fees: $20
(Use Discount Code earlybird20 if you sign up by 31 July, to get 20% off)

Bubbles has been learning how to read and write, and this workshop therefore stood out for me.

In this workshop, Dr Thomas Armstrong will show parents how to help children develop literacy skills by linking words to images, music, logic, emotions, physical expression, social context, oral language, and nature.

Dr. Armstrong draws upon recent neuropsychological research in showing how reading and writing skills are whole brain activities, and he provides practical tips and suggestions for teaching everything from phonics to reading comprehension using whole brain strategies.

This workshop is for parents with children from 3 to 12 years old who want to lay strong foundation in their kids in reading and writing using the concept of multiple intelligences.

I have 5 pairs of tickets to this workshop to give away!

To stand a chance to win this, simply share or tweet this post's link and leave a comment here!

Giveaway ends on Thursday, 8 August 10pm. All the best!
