Take-Home Literacy Kits are a new exciting opportunity for first grade students and families across the district. These kits are a take- home reading program to help first graders practice their reading skills, involve parents in the educational process and help students prepare for the testing standards of third grade. By the end of this school year, every first grade classroom will have the use of the literacy kits. Each kit is based on a common child friendly theme and contains three books on the theme along with related fun activities for parents and children to complete together. Students check out the kits at school and return them the following week in order to get another kit. These are another tool for schools and families to use to help all first graders improve their reading skills. For more information on these kits, please contact your child’s first grade teacher or school principal.
