Literacy Alive!

Our biggest service event of the year, Literacy Alive!, is fast approaching and we still need volunteers! The event is on Wednesday, February 22nd from 12:45-3:15 at Forest View School and you will receive 3 service points for attending. If you have class, a note can be provided by Kristy for proof of commitment after you have talked to your professor. This note does not officially excuse you from class, but will let your professors know that you are volunteering at an official College of Education service event.

This is a huge event that is not only a lot of fun, but is great classroom experience! We will be working with grades K-3rd, including students in special education, to promote literacy as a fun experience. This year’s theme is being green. There will be a recycling relay, read alouds, and decorating their very own planter made out of recyclable materials!

Please sign up for this wonderful event by Saturday, February 18th so I can assign a group of members to each of the classrooms! Sign up here: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1xMXhacCvNpbvfu-F_9MMlVUAc88P04b18LvANVsOzoE/edit#gid=0.

There is also a prep night for the event on Saturday, February 19th from 7:00-8:30pm. We will be prepping materials, going over the schedule, and becoming familiar with the read aloud books. If you are planning on attending Literacy Alive!, it is highly recommended that you attend the prep night. If for some reason you are not able to, I will get the information to you another way. Sign up for prep night here: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/17vowzwVvqKTBnBNZz338WYqpVa0lDKI5Qxf56vduhVI/edit#gid=0.
