Preschool Parent Poster

This is a guide to a preschool literacy program funded by the Rochester Education Foundation (REF). Each year, REF gives out books to teachers with innovative programs to promote reading in their classrooms or libraries. In 2014, the Andrew. J Townsend School #39 Library recieved 200 books for preschool students. These books were given to children who read a book with a grown up, and then filled out a "book report" made by drawing a picture about the story. The  book report would then be turned into the teacher or the library, enabling the child to recieve a free book -- often two. Parent programs were also part of this grant, where parents and students read together in the classroom. There was also a story time in the library introducing the program and welcoming parents. It is a simple and effective way to get families reading together. Additionally, there is  the ability to print and use the poster poster, which helps parents with limited reading ability choose appropriate books for their children. Each book on the poster is wordless, or has few words. One or two books may have an audio cassette, but each title on the poster is meant to help parents connect with young children.

THE GRANT IS POSTED AT THE BEGINNING OF THE SCHOOL YEAR. LAST YEAR'S SUBMISSION DATE WAS NOVEMBER 24.
