HOW RIF WORKS
What is a THEME?
A subject area that the events activities and books center around. Examples are: Inventors, Heroes, Culture or Math
The combination of activities, themes and getting books related to the themes ties information gathering and book ownership together.
Students are motivated to OWN information!
Event Volunteers: Pre-activity and Book Distribution Day
Eight volunteers assigned to each school for each visit. There are 2 visits per event (Pre-activity and Distribution) and 3 events per year.
The program is extremely economical. The cost per child for three activity days and three free books in under $6.00 per child. Yet, for many of the children we work with these are the FIRST books they OWN!
