Moonshot Moment Milestone Mission: Literacy Off the Page - Experience the Power of the Arts

The Moonshot Moment goal is to have 90% of children reading on grade level by the end of third grade in 2018.  This invitation event "Litreacy Off the Page" event will introduce the new partnership with the Vero Beach Museum of Art and how the "Power of the Arts" will be used to develop reading milestones that will help our children achieve this reading goal!

We know that by the age of three, lower-income children hear 30 million fewer words than their higher-income peers. 

These children typically are behind when the arrive in kindergarten, sometimes as much as two years behind.

We know that  the development of oral language skills accounts for 50% of the development of reading milestones and that it can be used to bridge the 30 million word gap!

Our Moonshot Milestone Mission is to integrate the power of the arts to teach people the reading milestones, and to provide examples of easy-to-do milestone activities  that are age appropriate for children, starting at birth. 

The kickoff of the "Literacy off the Page - Experience the Power of the Arts" will be held at the Vero Beach Museum of Art, in partnership with The Learning Alliance, and will begin our County's two-year project to integrate the ARTS into the Moonshot Moment mission.
