WAYS TO IMPLEMENT THE A&E LITERACY PROJECT
 
 
In Your Schools
 
Similar to the Dictionary Project, the A&E Literacy Project has the potential to become a successful annual project for your club. Of course, these are only suggestions based on what other clubs are doing. You can tailor the program to suit your club and your schools.
 
  

For optimum exposure, you may want to consider something like this:

  • In the fall, distribute Hardbound Picture Books to each 2nd Grader.

  • In the spring, distribute Coloring & Activity Books to each 2nd Grader.

  • In the following fall, if your club is involved in the Dictionary Project, you can insert the Four-Way Test Bookmark into each dictionary as you distribute them to each 3rd Grader.

        This program gives each child three consecutive hits of the Four-Way Test.

 

If your budget is a concern, you may want to consider something like this:

  • Give Hardbound Picture Books to each 2nd Grade Teacher and give Coloring & Activity Books to each 2nd Grader.

  • If your club is involved in the Dictionary Project, you can insert the Four-Way Test Bookmark into each dictionary as you distribute them to each 3rd Grader.

 
Another idea is to simply do this:
 
  • Give Hardbound Picture Books to each School Library.

  • If your club is involved in the Dictionary Project, you can insert the Four-Way Test Bookmark into each dictionary as you distribute them to each 3rd Grader.

 
 
In Your Club
 
Here are some ways for your club to implement the A&E Literacy Project.
 
  • Use the A&E Literacy Project as a fund-raiser. Purchase Hardbound Picture Books and Coloring & Activity Books and resell them to club members and your community.

  • Purchase Hardbound Picture Books, Coloring &Activity Books and Four-Way Test Bookmarks to have on hand and use them as gifts for your guest speakers throughout the year.

 
 
In Your Community
 
Here are some ways for your club to implement the A&E Literacy Project in your community.
 
  • Purchase Hardbound Picture Books and donate them to your local libraries.

  • Purchase Hardbound Picture Books and donate them to hospitals, children’s hospitals, day-care centers and the offices of doctors, dentists, optometrists, veterinarians or any local businesses with waiting areas, such as hair salons, auto mechanics, etc.

  • Purchase Hardbound Picture Books and donate them to local restaurants. Many restaurants have books available to children while waiting for their food.

  • Have Hardbound Picture Books, Coloring & Activity Books and Four-Way Test Bookmarks on hand for giveaways at Rotary events throughout the year.
