Project Report | Dec 9, 2019
A first semester full of learning and fun for our Readers!

By Melanie Catalfomo | Program Development Coordinator

The 68 participating students at Readers for the Future are off to a great start this year! 

Some of the fun activities included "De Mañana con Nuestros Autores" with 9 Puerto Rican children's book authors spending the morning reading and sharing activities with our students and our annual t-shirt design contest. All students and teachers received this year's t-shirt designed by one of our students. In his drawing, he portrayed how reading makes him feel. 

Our work with students is not limited to teaching students to read, we help them expand their vocabulary along with their word knowledge and we instill in them life values such as responsibility while rewarding them for their resilience.

We believe in empowering not only our students but also their parents and classroom teachers by sharing best practices in literacy to reach more students and support them beyond our walls.

On December 6th we held a parent workshop: "Jugando con Palabras". Parents learned fun, dynamic games to help develop phonological skills with their children proving that Reading is FUN!

Thank you for helping to make Readers for the Future a reality for students like Anelis, a 2nd grader who could not read 4 months ago. Now, it's common to find her in our classroom at Llorens Torres Elementary School at 7:45am participating in morning chores and getting extra work done bright and early because in her words: "I want to learn to read and go to the university and earn more money like my mother."
