La Crosse, WI (WXOW) - The Northside Roosevelt Elementary kindergarten classes will have some new books to add to their library, thanks to a unique program.
The Northside kindergarten teachers were awarded $300 from S.S.E. Music, Honda Motorwerks, and WXOW News 19 through the Tools for Schools program.
Puppets and read-a-long cd's will accompany the new books.
New sources of literature will help the children develop essential reading skills.
"Using music and movement helps the kids retain those skills of comprehension, fluency, and building vocabulary, building all of those ability levels. The cd's can be used by all ability levels and learning styles in the classroom," said kindergarten teacher Shelly Jones.
Teachers can apply for the Tools for Schools program on our website, www.wxow.com.
WXOW will help a teacher or class each month.
