Building Literacy With Dr. Seuss Books

"The more that you read, the more things you will know.
The more that you learn, the more places you'll go."
Dr. Seuss

How many of you learned to read with Dr. Seuss books? Dr. Seuss books provide repetition with sounds and vocabulary.  They are also entertaining and fun to read.  We would like to have a library of Dr. Seuss books at Grace School, PremNagar School and Kichahi School. Each book will have a recorded CD to help with correct pronunciation. We have selected ten titles for the level one certificate program. Upon completion of all ten titles, students will receive a certificate of achievement.  Teachers will be encouraged to go through this program first. We hope to increase English literacy in the schools in a fun way that motivate the students. Our goal is to have 150 books to send to Nepal with the next team.  Books need to be collected by October 15th.  Please contact us if you would like to participate in our Dr. Seuss book drive! This is a great project for schools, church groups, scouting troops or local businesses.
