Agriculture Literacy Day Program
Forever There’s a Forest!
Florida Agriculture in the Classroom Agriculture Literacy Day kick off date is October 22, 2019, but you can read any day of the school year.
Florida Agriculture in the Classroom, Inc. and the Florida Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services created this year’s Agriculture Literacy Day book titled Forever There’s a Forest! We are excited to announce that this year’s book highlights the Florida forestry industry. The Agriculture Literacy Day program will kickoff in the fall again this year giving volunteers the entire school year to find an elementary school to work with and the perfect date to read. FAITC invites Florida agriculture industry volunteers to find an elementary school near them!
Florida Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services employees, University of Florida IFAS Extension Agents, 4-H Agents and Master Gardeners, Florida Farm Bureau members, Florida Cattlemen and Cattlewomen members, FFA teachers, students and other agriculture industry representatives are invited to read and are asked to schedule their classroom visits with schools at least two weeks before their readings.
*Reminder Readers: When reading to students only read the top 4 rhyming lines on each page for smoother flow of the book. Allow the teacher to use the paragraphs below for additional teaching opportunities.
