EW! Vermont's Programs
EW! Vermont program consists of four main elements designed to increase
literacy skills and to cultivate a lifelong love of reading and
learning in kindergarten through 6th-graders.
- Power Lunch
foundation of Everybody Wins! is the Power Lunch, which pairs
elementary school children with adult reading mentors. Reading mentors
spend one hour a week at schools with their student partners. Each
week, the pairs read from good books and share conversations about
books. The Power Lunch provides children with positive role models and
fosters a love of reading and learning. Want to become a mentor? Click here for more information.
family events highlight literature and literacy. Programs feature
experts who work with parents and reading mentors to develop skills in
reading aloud to children. They also provide an opportunity for parents
and guardians to meet their child(ren)’s reading mentor(s).
- Gift Books
ensure students have books to call their own, EW! VT distributes
high-quality children's books to participating students two times each
school year. Gift books are often donated by individuals, corporations,
bookstores, and publishers.
Student and mentor reading pairs write to each other during school
vacations, allowing pairs to remain in touch while EW! VT is on hiatus.
