CELEBRATE LITERACY WEEK, FLORIDA!

The Early Learning Coalition is pleased to announce the 11th annual statewide Celebrate Literacy Week, Florida. The event will take place the week of January 28 to February 1, 2019.

The 2019 theme is "Spreading Literacy, One View at a Time." With this theme in mind, we encourage all early childhood centers and family day care homes, to help spread the love of reading and the importance of literacy by participating in a garden-themed approach. As educators, you are spreading seeds, growing readers and harvesting the love of reading with the children you serve.

The Coalition is encouraging all of our early childhood providers to participate in a simultaneous reading event on Wednesday, January 30, at 9:00 a.m. (EST). Providers will spread the love of literacy in their homes, centers, and schools by reading Chicka Chicka Boom Boom by Bill Martin, Jr. and John Archambault, to Infant/Toddlers (birth to 3 years old) and Planting a Rainbow by Lois Ehlert, to preschoolers (3 to 5 years old)
