2021 Social Media Campaign - A New Alphabet

"What does it take to create literate, compassionate, curious life-long learners who will improve our world?"

This is the framing question behind the work of our Moonshot Community Action Network (MCAN) working collaboratively for the last ten years toward our "Moonshot Moment" literacy goal.  Our goal is to support children and their families, so children will be ready for kidergarten and 90% of 3rd graders reading on level by the end of the school year.  

Why a social media campaign?
We know that we need 90% of our community support to reach this 90% literacy goal, and have created the new 2021 social media campaign to inform and impact our Indian River County residents.  We are working to make Indian River County a leading literacy capital of the nation!

How it works:  
Each "Moonshot Monday" we will share a post with information about our Moonshot Moment Literacy Movement.  Follow us on social media @MoonshotMoment as we share fun facts in "Did You Know" posts and "Featured Word" video interviews with our own "Moonshot the Puppet" and local community members.

Our Inspiration:
The learning that leads to literacy begins at birth, and happens through social and emotional experiences and connections with others. The book, A New Alphabet For Humanity, written by Leesa McGregor, illustrated by Daniela Sosa, introduces words that describe positive feelings, activities, and behaviors. Watch the videos of our Moonshot community members with "Moonshot the Puppet" as they bring the A New Alphabet for Humanity featured words to life.  To learn more about this inspiratoinal book, visit the Alphabet for Humanity website.

We invite you to show your support of this Moonshot literacy work by sharing our social media posts each week.
