LaGrange High FFA Spreads Literacy with the Mobile Book Barn
First graders at Franklin Forest Elementary (FFES) school got a special reading treat when they came into the media center to hear a story read to them by students in LaGrange High School’s (LHS) Future Farmers of America (FFA) organization. They got to open the mobile book barn to retrieve their personal copy of Mr. Brown Can Moo! Can You? by Dr. Seuss.
The idea of the mobile book barn was the brainchild of Jessica Bowden, agriculture education teacher at LHS. She said, “After researching other school systems and what they do to promote literacy, the idea of the mobile book barn was born. I thought it would be a great idea for my FFA students to celebrate Agriculture Literacy Week. Literacy is a big focus and we wanted to encourage kids to get into reading and promote literacy for our school system.”
