Literacy Live Kicks Off Their Fall Program

Tuesday, September 24, 2013

Twenty-five students at the first Literacy Live Event of the fall 2013 semesterOn September 7, the first Literacy Live Event of the fall semester was held in the Education building at UNCW.  Twenty-five students, brightly dressed to reflect the event’s rainbow theme, gathered with parents and volunteers to use their imagination and creativity to recreate stories, develop comprehension skills and share the joy of reading.  The children designed rainbow fish using colored markers, coffee filters and water; created rainbows on the ceiling using water, light and movement, and listed things found in nature that correspond with each color of the rainbow in a program designed to integrate science and literature, while celebrating art and music.

Literacy Live, a partnership between WCE’s Department of Youth Programs and Randall Library, is now in its 5th year.   Monthly Saturday programs are offered in the fall and spring to children ages 4–7 free of charge.   Additional events will be held on October 19 and November 2, 2013.  To register for Literacy Live in October please visit http://library.uncw.edu/cmc/literacy_live/
