1, 2 Buckle My Shoe Facilitator Training

1, 2, Buckle My Shoe provides accessible, relevant early literacy information, and interactive activities, where caregivers and children grow their literacy and numeracy skills together in a fun, supportive setting. It is a family learning program for parents/caregivers and their children ages 3-5. This 6-week program focuses on early numeracy skills for daily use.

1, 2, Buckle My Shoe includes the participation of the parent or caregiver: “Assisting parents with their literacy development will impact not only the adults but their children as well, as they transfer skills” (Phillips, 2006).

This all-day training session focuses on program curriculum and planning, and how to create a safe place for learning. During this training, you will also learn about the characteristics of adult learners, the importance of cultural competence, and evaluation. Using interactive elements, you will learn a variety of techniques and strategies for creating an effective program.

We offer this training to organizations interested in providing the program to their community. Contact [email protected] for more information.
