The Colorado Literacy Project will take place from April through May this year. The Colorado Literacy Project provides an opportunity for students to meet farmers and ranchers as they read to students in kindergarten through fifth grades. This year each student will get to take home one of the publications.
We need one person from the school to be the contact to coordinate with the teachers in the school and the farmers and ranchers.
Two books will be available to use. The first is If You Love Honey. It takes readers on a beautifully illustrated adventure through the intertwining natural world around us. It highlights the work of our bees, linking golden honey on bread to the earthworms crawling underground, and everything in-between. This books is appropriate for K-3 grades.
A second book is Cattle in Colorado History. Students will learn about the history of Colorado's cattle industry. It explores the cattle trails, the equipment used by ranchers and the products we get from cattle. This book is appropriate for fourth and fifth grades.
