The Bozeman School Foundation’s Links to Literacy Program
Every year in September every Bozeman Public School First Grade Students, plus the librarians at those schools, receive a book from the Bozeman Schools Foundation. This book is a gift from the Bozeman Schools Foundation’s Link to Literacy Program. Along with the book, student and families will receive information about the important role parents play in the early literacy process and suggestions for reading out loud to their children. This year, all 1st Grade Students will receive a hard cover copy book on September 15th.
Two weeks later, on Friday, September 29th from 2:30-4pm, we invite all first grade students and their families to the Bozeman Public Library to participate in extension of the book activity stations. There will be painting and drawing activities, creating crafts and all kinds of games.
This year’s book is ‘Cookies – Bite-Size Life Lessons’, written by Amy Krouse Rosenthal and illustrated by Jane Dyer. Everyone knows cookies taste good, but these cookies also have something good to say. At every turn this book is clever, honest, inspirational, and whimsical. Go ahead, take a bite! Perfect for learning concept words. This picture book is a gift from the Bozeman Schools Foundation’s Links to Literacy Program.
We’ve enjoyed bringing this project to the Bozeman Public Schools and hope that you find time to read your new book together! To learn more about the Bozeman Schools Foundation go to BozemanSchoolsFoundation.org. Hope to see you at the Library on September 29th, at 2:30 pm. Siblings and friends welcome!
