Teachers' Group Distributes Literacy Kits
The St. Lawrence-Lewis Teachers Association is hoping to help youngsters have fun learning.
The group has purchased books, puppets and stuffed animals for three new literacy curriculum kits.
Everything is science related and everything relates either to New York state or to the north country.
Students will be able to learn how to identify trees, what it's like to travel the St. Lawrence Seaway in a ship and what foods are the healthiest.
"Reading is fundamental and is the basis for all learning," said special education teacher Rose Taillon.
"Also with reading,we write to extend activities," she said.
"Most of the material that teachers are going to use has to come from non-fiction sources," said Marcia Eggleston, supervisor of the Learning Resource center, "so all three are on science topics."
The literacy kits will be available to teachers through the St. Lawrence-Lewis BOCES.
