As 2013 comes to a close, it’s time to prepare for the new year, get organized, and set new goals. What better way to kick off 2014 than with an exclusive calendar from Jumpstart that gives families and teachers simple tips to make learning, curiosity, and literacy a part of every day?
Our unique 2014 calendar provides monthly activities to build children’s language and literacy skills, and book recommendations to read with your children throughout the year!
As an added bonus, the calendar is bilingual, featuring both English and Spanish content, and includes tips and information about:
- How children learn to read and write
- Monthly activity ideas to build children’s language and literacy skills
- A book selection to read with children each month
- Songs and poems
The best part? Proceeds from each and every purchase support Jumpstart’s vital service in preschool classrooms in low-income neighborhoods across the country.
