South Carolina Children’s Theatre has partnered with ArtsGrow SC and the South Carolina Arts Commission to create Literacy Kits that promote pandemic recovery and K-5 readiness skills using theatre education teaching tools. Each Literacy Kit includes a beloved children’s book, theatre props, art materials, instructions (available in English and Spanish), and more to bring each book’s story to life. These kits can offer the perfect addition to your existing story times and other programming.
We have Literacy Kits centered around the following beloved children’s books:
· Leonardo, the Terrible Monster by Mo Willems
· Last Stop on Market Street by Matt de la Peña (available in English and Spanish)
· Dumplings for Lili by Melissa Iwai
· Go Dog Go! by P.D. Eastman
· The Snowy Day by Ezra Jack Keats (available in English and Spanish)
These kits will be available in multiple regions of the State. This program is FREE for all educators in South Carolina, and we would be thrilled to drop off a Literacy Kit (or multiple kits) at your location or coordinate a pickup with one of our partners. We are also happy to provide in-person or virtual training on how to use the kits for those interested before the end of the school year. Please email Mia Hartley-Phillips at [email protected] to coordinate your delivery and/or training!
More information about Lesson Plans and videos on how to utilize the Literacy Kits are listed below.
