RAFT Starts This Week!
January 18, 2011
RAFT, despite what it sounds like, is not, in this case, a mode of transport on water.
Our RAFT stands for: Reading Aloud Family Time.
RAFT is a program to promote literacy by encouraging and rewarding families for reading together. Families that read three chaptered books together, earn a free hardback version of The Jungle Book, an award certificate, and a chance to win a DVD copy of the Disney animated movie of the The Jungle Book.
This program begins this week and runs thru March 31st. The more lists of three you complete, the more raffle tickets for the DVD drawing you can get! But best of all, you get the joy of spending time reading with your family, an activity that is a reward in and of itself.
You can find out more about the program and sign up HERE!
So whether you're a family of humans, bears, panthers, wolves or even a monkey's uncle, start in on your own reading adventure during this year's 2011 RAFT program!
