Literacy Programs

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.
