I posted a little note recently about a program I came across the other day called "Read to Feed". Anyway, I received my packet today and it is fabulous. I got a video for the kids to watch that explains the program to the kids. It came with a HUGE teacher's manual geared toward 3-4 graders with tons of lessons/activities that go along with a unit if you so choose. Plus, it came with a great paperback book (FREE) called "Beatrice's Goat". The story is based on a real family that received aid from this program. It actually brought me to tears when I first read it. If you read the post before and passed on the idea you may want to take another look at their site. It is a very neat way of helping the less fortunate and give your child a good reason to read. My dd likes to read but doesn't do it as much as I wish. So, I explained the program to her, read her this book and she was overly excited and motivated to read. She is reading books like crazy as I type this. I'm so excited about this.
