Oh my goodness, can we at Alive Studios just tell you guys how much fun we had at NAEYC’s Annual Conference! It was so awesome. We got to see and meet so many dedicated educators, it was truly inspiring. For all in attendance we hope you guys were able to get to Follett’s booth and see Letters Alive in action. We offered TWO Letters alive giveaways while there and had a phenomenal turnout for both giveaways.
Our first winner was Nikki Moeller from Victoria, TX. Nikki is one of three Pre-K teachers at Hopkins Magnet Academy. Victoria is a town whose population is majority Hispanic, with the town’s major employment industry being manufacturing. Historically many of Victoria’s students have underperformed in the Texas Assessment of Knowledge and Skills (TAKS), with African American children and children with special needs performing below state average in reading. A program like Letters alive has the opportunity to bring great value to Ms. Moeller’s classroom.
Ms. Moeller in previous years applied through adoptaclassroom.org for additional funding for supplies. As many know school budgets are being reduced throughout the country. Alive Studios giveaway at NAEYC will provide this classroom with an engaging program that can supplement their established reading curriculum and help to engage the students who maybe falling between the cracks.
Letters alive offers a supplemental reading curriculum that can help to engage all student and give academically at risk children a better chance at success. With the use of augmented reality this program helps to give early learners a better foundation for reading comprehension and helps to build a strong academic foundation, which is essential for success.
Congratulations again to Nikki Moeller and her lovely Pre-K class.Letters alive has found a good home!
