LINC-ed into Literacy and the Library
April 03, 2013
Industrious Word Detectives at the LINC before and after school program in Grandview have tracked down EVASIVE and ELUSIVE words! While reading Mid-Continent Public Library books during afterschool activities provided by LINC, super readers at Belvidere and Butcher Greene Elementary Schools have discovered new words and increased their vocabulary and reading comprehension scores .
The Local Investment Commission (LINC) is a citizen-driven community collaborative involving efforts to improve the lives of children and families in the Kansas City region. The work of these outstanding students is on display and available for viewing at the Grandview Branch.
Congratulations to Bennie Avery and Danisha Clarkson, LINC site coordinators, for serving the children of our community in such an outstanding way.
