The mission of AESOP’s ATTIC is to be a leading advocate for reading and literacy in underserved populations. Our focus will include assembling a team of professional reading specialists, teachers of reading, and certified paraprofessional reading assistants and certified tutors to inspire and provide direct support to parents and students in the development of reading skills. AESOP’s ATTIC intends to provide students in grades K-5 with primary and supplemental didactic and hands-on experiences to improve their knowledge of letters and letter sounds, phonemic awareness, phonics, vocabulary, grammar, spelling, fluency, comprehension, and writing. AESOP’s ATTIC espouses a particular concern and empathizes with struggling readers in the beginning elementary years.. AESOP’s ATTIC intends to operate as: a convenient after school and summertime literacy outreach center(s) in affiliation with the Catholic Urban Programs and the Griffin Centers of East St. Louis, IL.
Our resources afford us the capability to organize and maintain a library and language arts room(s) continuously available to the kids during the center’s normal hours of operation. Our library will be filled with leveled texts from the Fountas & Pinnell Leveled Literacy Intervention series and free-issue books provided by First Read of STL. These books are our tools as we strive to match 'books to readers’ during small group reading instruction and guided reading. While the Fountas & Pinnell program uses authentic text in a balanced-program approach to reading instruction, our literacy activities and games and writing workshops support the alphabetic principle and reading development fundamentals such as phonics and decoding, fluency, comprehension, vocabulary, and writing
