Humanities Washington has made Motheread classes part of their work for the last fourteen years.  They maintain partnerships with a variety of agencies to train Motheread instructors and provide Motheread classes to parents and children.  During the last year, Motheread Washington began to emphasize work with statewide organizations such as Washington State Child Care Resource and Referral to maximize the impact of Motheread training and curricula.  They also focused on serving migrant workers and their children.  In partnership with the Washington State Migrant Council, they set the goal of training every Migrant Council Head Start teacher—more than 120 teachers—in Motheread’s Story Exploring curriculum.  With one more training, they expect to reach this goal.  They also established lending libraries and classroom libraries in Migrant Council Head Start programs. Through this initiative they seek to provide consistency for migrant children whose families often move around the state.
