Reading to Learn Learning for Life

Agriculture in the Classroom Literacy Project 2011

Beginning March 14, 2011 and continuing through May 31, 2011 the AITC Literacy program will be training volunteers who will visit local schools and read to students in Kindergarten through Fourth grade.  After the reading, volunteers do an activity with students and share their connection to agriculture.  The program takes approximately 45 minutes and all materials are free and completely prepared for the schools and volunteers.  Classrooms also receive a copy of the book.  To enhance the reading session, AITC provides teachers with additional hands-on lessons and materials.

To bring this program to your school, or to become a volunteer, visit AITC's website at http://aitc.oregonstate.edu or call their office at 541-737-1318.
