Read to Them is the non-profit organization that works to promote family literacy. Their mission "is to create a culture of literacy in every home." They do this by assisting schools in implementing One School, One Book programs.
Through the One School, One Book program, families and school faculty will all receive a copy of a book, this year's book is Charlotte's Web by E.B. White. Once the school receives the books, they will be distributed, along with a calendar of reading and recording form. Together, as a TJ community, we will read aloud Charlotte's Web at home. Research shows the complex and permanent effects being read aloud has on children, even children who can fluently read.
Keep your eyes and ears out for more information via our TJ Facebook page, Constant Contact and through notes from the classroom.
