Porter the Hoarder Family Engagement Project
Porter the Hoarder is now part of a reading project that is state-wide in South Dakota and soon to roll-out across the nation!
Students, teachers, and school libraries each receive a special edition copy of Porter the Hoarder and the Ransacked Room. This is the first in a 64-book series will be given out before the book’s international publication.
Here’s how it works!
What the Project Package includes:
All 1st grade students are provided their very own copy of Porter the Hoarder and the Ransacked Room.
All teachers are provided additional books for the classroom bookshelves.
All teachers are provided access to an eVersion of the book that can be projected on smartboards and read with the whole class.
All teachers are provided a “how-to” video that demonstrate the objectives of the Porter experience and how to cultivate engagement in the classroom and at home.
Parents are provided a fun, funny, and simple guide to reading the books with kids.
School libraries are provided copies of the books for their collection. In test schools, these books rarely spend time on the shelf.
A launch party and signing event are hosted in various regions across the state as the project rolls out. The objective is to increate family engagement and solidify a habit of reading in the home.
The result is a laughter-filled good time for Bigs and Littles alike.
