About this Grantee

To increase students’ letter knowledge and phonological awareness as well as parents’ involvement in their children’s education, Mrs. Hunter, Ms. Ferlin, and Ms. Welty create literacy backpacks. Students bring home weekly backpacks with activities that address a difficult literacy skill. Students demonstrate their enhanced literacy skills by creating an illustrated rhyming book to keep in their home library.
