Smart from the Start joined the citywide celebration of Talk, Read & Play Day! This special day was launched in Boston as a public awareness campaign for local parents and caregivers with children ages 0-5, supporting them with embracing their role as their children’s first teachers. Smart hosted a “Flash Rhyme Mob” in Roxbury to raise awareness of the need for parents to actively engage verbally with their infants and toddlers. The day featured singing, rhymes, reading, games, fine motor skills activities, and arts-and-crafts! The unexpected rainy day kept us indoors, but the families and children did not let a little rain stop them from having a great day and continued on with the Flash Rhyme Mob indoors at the Michael T. Carmen Center.
