Promoting community partnerships in New Orleans to help children succeed in school and life

ELF Holiday Book Store

tumblr_lvy6ijuCsk1r59dlxo1_500.pngDuring the month of December, Pre-K and Kindergarten children in the Seamless Transitions program build “ELF Book Stores” in their classrooms.   They earn “money” doing good deeds during the first week of the month to shop for books for classmates (chosen out of a hat) as holiday gifts.

The program involves literacy, math, problem-solving, creative arts and social skills.

More than 500 age-appropriate books were donated to the project from a small town in Connecticut two years ago.
