LitWorld has launched a family LitClub program called Story21 with our partner in Harlem, Broadway Housing Communities, to provide tablet technology, mentorship, and guidance to families as they embark on the path to 21st century literacy. Using the LitClub model, Story21 will integrate the power of story and personal narrative with apps and technology to engage families in literacy growth.
We are tremendously grateful for generous donations from Storypanda and SNAP! Learning and Scholastic. SNAP! donated a subscription to their ebook collection, providing ebooks that children and their caregivers will read together to build lasting, joyful memories. Storypanda donated book apps that allow children to read and then creatively manipulate picture books. Scholastic donated an incredible 300 Storia eBooks from their trove of children's literature. We cannot wait to use both of these in our upcoming sessions. Visit the LitClub blog to follow our Story21 journey.
