Q. What do you get when you bring 150 educators, librarians, and principals together for a day jam-packed with literacy?
A. Inspiration, excitement for learning, and a whole lot of creative ideas!
Yesterday, elementary educators from all over New Hampshire and Vermont joined us at the scenic Lake Morey Resort in Fairlee, VT for our 7th annual Community Literacy Conference.
One of the things that makes CLiF programs unique is our amazing line-up of 64 authors, illustrators, poets, and storytellers who visit low-income, at-risk, and rural kids in schools, libraries, after school programs, childcare centers, immigrant/refugee programs, shelters and affordable housing developments, summer camps, and other places where kids spend time.
Could it be? Is that… sun? Are those… green sprouts coming out of the ground?
Here are a few notable stories we saw over the past several sunny, springy days:
- Charlotte Albright of Vermont Public Radio visited Lowell, VT to talk with CLiF Year of the Book students and Natalie Kinsey-Warnock about their Story Keepers family history research and writing projects.
