In partnership with Governor’s Early Literacy Foundation (GELF), the department is opening up an opportunity for parents to order free at-home reading resources this winter for any of their children in grades K-2. 

Through this partnership, the department and GELF want to encourage at-home reading practice to help young learners become stronger readers outside of the classroom. Based on if a child is in kindergarten, 1st or 2nd grade, they will receive seven At-Home Decodable Book Series, which contain 20+ exciting stories full of sounds and words to practice, and age-appropriate, high-quality books from Scholastic. 

All Tennessee families can order one booklet pack for each of their kindergarten, 1st, and 2nd-grade students using this site

This launch is part of the family component of the state’s Reading 360 initiative to help boost strong reading skills amongst Tennessee students.
