Family Literacy (FLAIR)

FLAIR is an interactive class in which children and adults are invited to participate with other families online to learn English. In this class, families will learn the alphabet, the pronunciation of sounds and short words, and reading-readiness skills, and much more. We focus on kids' interests, and explore topics such as nature, science, culture, food, history and more through songs, stories, games, virtual field trips, crafts, and art. Students can also receive homework assistance through tutoring.
