Want to boost local reading efforts for kids? So do we!
Children's literacy has always been important. It factors into a child’s behavior and self-esteem, likelihood to graduate high school, overall success as an adult, and more. The need to boost literacy efforts could be even greater now with the disruption in learning caused by the pandemic.
That’s why Modern Woodmen has launched a yearlong effort to support children’s literacy in communities across the U.S. Member chapters and youth service clubs across the country will coordinate special activities throughout the year to bring the love of books to kids, fulfill library and classroom wish lists, and more.
January, February, March: Members are reading to and with kids at schools, libraries, child centers and other locations in their communities.
April, May, June: Members will be “book fairies,” hiding books around their communities for children to find and enjoy.
July, August, September: Members will fulfill needs for local classrooms, libraries and children’s literacy organizations through hands-on projects and fundraisers.
October, November, December: Members will create/donate blank children’s books and work one-on-one with kids to help them write their own stories.
