Open Book Adventures 2014: Animals


How might we improve literacy skills for underserved kids in K – 3rd grade?

One Stone continued to prototype and test the Open Book Adventures literacy project, in it’s next iteration, themed around animals. One Stone Adventure Guides developed lessons disguised as games that led to dramatic improvement in reading, writing and overall communication.  Additionally, over the course of the 6 –week program, the ability to create barnyard animal noises improved dramatically.


OBA participants reported a 96% improvement in reading, 100% improvement in writing and 76% improvement in overall communications.
