Literacy Kits


Make Reading Fun

United Way knows that by making reading fun we can encourage more kids to read and improve early grade reading and long term in school success rates.  That is why United Way has developed Literacy Kits.  United Way Literacy Kits are fun and interactive activities paired with favorite children’s books.  United Way volunteers help to design and build the kits which are then distributed to kids at local schools and early learning centers.
The Little Red Hen
Colorful farm animals seem to jump right off the page—but they aren’t jumping to help the Little Red Hen plant her wheat! Young children will learn a valuable lesson about teamwork from this funny, favorite folktale.A special thank you to Barb Boltz for choosing the theme and creating the template for the kit.  Thank you also to Kent State students who are currently assembling the 324 kits during their Super Service Saturdays.
