The kits are for children in preschool through third grade, and help students and families practice a variety of skills.
DEARBORN, MI — The Dearborn Public Library is offering literacy kits for families to use with children in preschool through third grade. The kits will help students and families practice skills, such as phonics, phonemic awareness, comprehension, vocabulary, and fluency.
Each kit is sorted by grade level and includes a sheet explaining the featured skill, activity suggestions, book suggestions and a VOX talking book, which is an audio player that allows children to listen to a fluent reader and follow along with the text. The kits can be used in the library or can be checked out with a Dearborn Public Library card. To see the wide variety of available VOX Books titles, search for “literacy kit” in the library catalog at dearbornlibrary.org.
“We are thrilled to be able to offer VOX Books for our families to use at home,” Library Deputy Director Julie Schaefer said. “They are the much improved, up-to-date version of the books that came with a cassette kit and beeped when it was time to turn the page. The books engage readers and improve their overall reading ability, which leads to greater success in school.”
