The Education Foundation has adopted three literacy programs that began as classroom grants in ECISD.
Bookworms Literacy Program
The Bookworms Literacy Program is designed to help increase literacy and foster a life-long love of reading. Each month students (grades Pre-K – 1) will read along to a story in class and then receive a copy of the book to take home to keep in an effort to promote at-home family reading. Learn more here.
Battle of the Bluebonnets
Battle of the Bluebonnets is designed to encourage students (grades 3 – 5) to read more books, to explore a variety of culturally diverse literature and a love for reading! Students will read a minimum of 5 of the 20 Texas Bluebonnet Award titles and then compete in a game show type atmosphere to test their knowledge of the readings.
Battle of the Texas 2 x 2’s
Battle of the Texas 2 x 2’s is similar to the Battle of the Bluebonnets, but targets our younger students (Kinder – 2) using the Texas 2 x 2’s book list sponsored by the Texas Library Association.
