PASADENA ISD EDUCATION FOUNDATION MINI-GRANT
Applicants: Andrea Gilger, Fara Gray, Lorena Garcia
Mini-Grant Name: Gotta Start Reading!
Abstract: Gotta Start Reading will target pre-K students in our zone who are not being served by a pre-K program. Students and their parents will be invited to our library six times throughout the year, when we will host an interactive story time and provide a coordinating extension activity. Then the students will be given a copy of the book to practice reading at home, thereby improving their readiness for kindergarten.
