This year, with a generous grant from The North Stonington Education Foundation, we have incorporated the 5 practices of "Every Child Ready to Read" (Talk, Sing, Read, Write, Play) to launch our program, so participants can benefit from purposeful "gifts" that promote literacy as they work towards reading 1,000 books!
200 books= TALK: whisper phone
400 books= SING: song shaker
600 books= READ: book choice
800 books= WRITE: jumbo crayons
1,000 books= PLAY: Play-doh
