Roosevelt's Wash and Learn
Roosevelt’s Wash and Learn began in November of 2019 by 1st grade bilingual teacher Anne-Marie McMahon. Mrs. MacMahon was inspired by The Chelsea Clinton Foundation and The Laundry Literacy Coalition to begin this program. The program creates opportunities for students and their families to experience a playful learning space. It provides them with early literacy resources and time for parents to talk, read, and sing with their young children with educators there to facilitate the learning experience. Throughout the pandemic Ms. McMahon and Mrs. Maritza Acevedo made frequent visits to the laundromat to refill the bookcases and ensure our students still had access to books. This year, the program has expanded to partnerships with New Brunswick Public Schools, NBEA PRIDE, Hidden Gems Literary Emporium, New Brunswick YAP and The Art Institute of Middlesex County.
The program meets monthly at the Handy Street Laundromat. It focuses on promoting literacy, talk, and building relationships amongst members in the community, such as teachers, administrators, students, families, representatives of the New Brunswick Police Department, and the like. The program’s mission is to provide resources for the community and provide learning opportunities for children and their families, "Talking is teaching,” McMahon states, “ We are role models for children. By talking and reading with our children, we help them learn, share ideas, become critical thinkers, and create lifelong memories that strengthen our bond with each other.”
