    Read "ME" Agriculture for K-4

    March 2019 book: Maple Syrup from the Sugarhouse


    Read "ME" Agriculture has reached more than 100,000 Maine students since 2008, and 700 classrooms annually. During Ag Week, volunteers read and give books about agriculture to kindergarten - 4th grade classrooms. They tell the students about their farms, programs, or connections to agriculture and leave lessons and information for the teachers to use, all supplied by Maine Agriculture in the Classroom (MAITC).

    Funding for this project is a direct result of the Maine agricultural specialty license plate and grants from USDA.

    2019 Book: Maple Syrup from the Sugarhouse

    March 18-22 and March 25-29
    Sign up by January 1!

    Sign-up your K-4 class up for a volunteer reader!

    In 2019, volunteers will read a new book to K-4 students in Knox and Lincoln county schools, "Maple Syrup from the Sugarhouse" written by Laurie Lazarro Knowlton and illustrated by Kathryn Mitter:

    Maple syrup season is here! Kelsey and her father begin harvesting sap from sugar maple trees. Family and friends join them to help in the process of turning the sap into maple syrup.

    As an extra bonus, each classroom receives a copy of the book with lesson ideas inside, and information on Maine Agriculture through a volunteer reader from the area.

    Volunteers read to students and share additional information about their own farms, programs, and experiences.

    Knox-Lincoln SWCD is fortunate to have many great volunteer readers, including the students from Herring Gut Learning Center in Pt Clyde, who enjoy reading to and sharing their experiences in the aquaculture program with younger students.

    If you would like more information about this program, to sign your class up, or if you would like to be a volunteer reader, please contact Rebecca Jacobs at 596-2040 or rebecca@knox-lincoln.org.
