ELC Literacy Kits
February 17, 2018 @ 9:00 am - 12:00 pm
We invite you to join the Emerging Leaders Council to create 175 literacy kits!
Learning to read by the end of third grade is the most important predictor of a child’s future success. Kids who fall behind find it harder to catch up, causing frustration and often a sense of “giving up.” Literacy Kits help children learn to read early on in life and be successful students.
What is a Literacy Kit?
Each kit includes a book and related activities perfect for one-on-one interaction and imagination. Kits are designed to focus on the skills young children need when learning to read.
Literacy Kits will be used by children in the classroom, in afterschool programs, in child care centers and for building libraries at home.
Two ways to help us reach our goal: volunteer or donate! Learn more: http://bit.ly/2BgPfA6
