Reminders from Jasmine
The early literacy manual is available on the website. You need to have an account for the website — if you don't, it's easy & there are no fees
Page 203 of the children's manual has an error — the "Where In Africa Is…" game: Zaire should be the Democratic Republic of Congo
The fonts used for the 2011 summer reading program are now available to download on the CSLP website. Simply log in, select the download section, scroll to fonts and you have access to the Youth, Teen and Adult program fonts.
