Introduction to The Little Read Materials

These materials have been written and/or compiled by Elementary Education students in their senior year at Lenoir-Rhyne University in Hickory, North Carolina for the The Little Read during the fall semester of 2012. These students volunteered to participate in this project under the leadership of Ms. Sarah Borders, an adjunct faculty member in the School of Education. In addition, select teachers from the partnership schools volunteered to assist these preservice teachers by sharing ideas, co-developing activities, and editing the work.

It is our sincere hope that this collection of resources and materials will be used to support instruction before, during and after the visit by Cynthia Lord this spring. Every attempt has been made to properly cite compiled resources and to edit for errors in writing conventions. We apologize for anything we missed during the editing process.

The materials found in this resource are for the express use of those educators connected with The Little Read. Use or duplication of the materials by all others without permission of The Little Read is prohibited. Inquiries regarding use may be directed to:
