Rotarian Laurie Hewings delivers Emergent Level Readers to Jill Jensen's class at Erickson Elementary.
Erickson Elementary School Teacher Jill Jensen asked the Rincon Rotary for a set of emergent leveled readers to teach guided reading in her classroom. The books will help her 24 kindergarten students learn print concepts, basic sight words, sound/symbol correlation, and blending of sounds for consonant-vowel-consonant words.
Rincon Rotary's support is part of its Rotary Local Program, whose mission is to help improve the local community through educational outreach. Rotary Local can provide manpower, resources from local business partners, or in some cases, direct financial support to teachers who apply for assistance.
