Raising BeYOUtiful Butterflies BeYOU LIT Reading Program ensures children start school with foundational literacy skills.

Library nooks: BeYOU LIT gives students from birth to 12th grade their choice of reading materials at no cost, through library nooks. Each student receives their choice of 12 new/gently used books that are theirs to keep to read. What’s the trick to “making” the students read the books? Provide them with books they want to read! Students make their own choices from a wide variety of fun, fiction, nonfiction, series, science related and kid-culture books. There is something to interest even the most reluctant reader!

Digital library: The ReadingIQ and ABCMouse app will provide access to a digital library of high-quality texts for students. As we continue to expand our reach and offer additional literacy services to our community partners, this opportunity could be shared with both the students enrolled in our program and the broader community. There is a subscription cost of $25 per student, which Raising BeYOUtiful Butterflies wants to cover.

Family engagement: Families and caregivers have always been vital to student success and should be engaged whenever possible. Here are some of the offerings Raising BeYOUtiful Butterflies will deliver to increase our support of families and students at home:

  • Family texting
  • Student learning packets 
  • Family literacy resources 
  • Family engagement workshops 

Students who are unprepared to start school often fall behind, leaving them unable to read well by the end of 3rd grade. Engaging and providing support to parents is crucial to create an environment that gives kids a strong start in reading.
