All of these materials are for use at home and not in the library due to the many pieces which may be choking hazards for very young children.
AWE Early Literacy Station™ (ELS) is a comprehensive, turnkey educational solution loaded with over 70 educational software programs for kids ages 2–8. The Early Literacy Station™ offers children a safe, standalone computer not connected to the Internet that is age-appropriate, engaging, and academically relevant for children. It is designed to support school readiness and early education while making learning exciting and engaging.
The early learning applications on the Early Literacy Station span every curriculum area: reading, language arts, math, science, STEM, social studies, writing, graphic arts, typing, music, and more. The content is correlated to Common Core standards. It also features a host of administrative controls including timed sessions and usage tracking.
The Early Literacy Station has an imaginative interface that encourages exploration by readers and pre-readers alike. Since it is a self-contained computer, the need for adult intervention and technical support is greatly minimized.
AWE’s Early Literacy Station, the company’s flagship product, is found in over 40% of the public libraries across the United States as well as in many communities in Canada and abroad. The computer will be available during our regular hours. Sign up is not required but we may limit sessions as demand increases. Come on in and check out this great new addition.
After finishing 1000 Books, your child will receive a certificate of achievement and an invitation to a “graduation” party in January. During the party the children who have completed the program during the previous year will be honored with a special story time, snack and a group photo.
Once you have read 1000 books, you are finished with the program. Please continue to read together, and feel free to add your own pages to the journal if you wish.
