Storytelling and oral/aural communications reinforce language development and pre-literate skills.
In fact, did you know that language priming and development begins in the womb?
In today's world, differing cultural backgrounds and technology have taken a toll on the projected outcomes of English language development and academic success by curtailing the necessary exposure to phonemes and gesticular cues that are an integral to acquiring communication skills.
Diminished exposure to English/academic language elements can stunt how current generations are primed for English language acquisition, and lessening degrees of personal communication---brought about by the expansive use of social media which relies on visual text and image inputs---can even affect social skills and emotional well-being.
The Project mission is to host workshops that underscore the importance of face-to-face communication and to offer strategies for moms-to-be on ways to bolster personal connections and English language exposure for later academic and social success of their young families.
Each interesting and fun workshop will include a "pampering" luncheon and give-aways that meet the needs of moms-to-be and language enrichment, such as a starter library of books, videos, and music cds that promote language skills.
Monetary donations through fiscal sponsorship are a primary goal. However, anyone can contribute to this mission.
Products donated for give-aways are also accepted as appropriate for this mission.
Each corporate sponsor is acknowledged on all promotional materials. Regular updates will be provided.
A GoFundMe account is also being established to support this worthwhile endeavor. TBA
