Brené Brown once said stories are data with a soul. The children in our Letters, Sounds and Words™ program do make incredible gains in their literacy skills, but it is their stories that touch our hearts. We have stories of children gaining confidence and self-esteem. We have stories of children making incredible gains in their early literacy skills. We have stories of volunteers seeing first-hand their impact on the children they work with. We have stories of community members truly making a difference in the life of a child.
Every parent, child and volunteer is unique, as is their experience in this program. Do you have a Letters, Sounds and Words story you wish to tell? Send us an e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Every child is unique and special. When they are young, they are just like sponges soaking up all the lessons we can teach them. Building a strong foundation for learning really does start from birth. The gift of reading is such a powerful tool.
I would like to share my extreme satisfaction with being involved with the Letters, Sounds and Words program for the past five years. The first time I read about this program through our school board’s email, I knew it was what we needed at our school to help our young struggling students.
