Read, Write, ROAR! Literacy Project

Practice lessons from our ELA and literacy show with your elementary students.

"Our parents are eager to learn and do more. [The Read, Write, ROAR! Literacy Project is] so simple to implement but the outcomes are beyond measure.

Learn Along with Your Young Learners

The Read, Write, ROAR! Literacy Project is a new way for parents to help their young readers with ELA skills.

Students receive a free activity book that follows along with hand-picked episodes of the Michigan Learning Channel show Read, Write, ROAR! that help students with critical subjects like word recognition, letter sounds, and more. Once a week for four weeks, participating families engage in virtual meet-ups to discuss how their students are learning.

"Parents saw genuine improvement in their children’s ability to recognize words and read, and new excitement about learning."
Georgeann Herbert
Senior Vice President, Strategy - Detroit Public Television
