Mission Statement

AESOP's Attic is a non-profit literacy outreach program which focuses on students in kindergarten through 5th grade from lower socio-economic neighborhoods. The program of instruction is fashioned after the traditional RTI programs of the NCLB legislation. Our program activities include after school literacy support using the leveled literacy intervention program of Fountas & Pinnell (2011), writing seminars provided by Lucy Calkins (K-5), a synthetic phonics program, and summer literacy camps which rely on leveled Reader's theater and literacy activities and games provided by Lakeshore Learning. All materials and activities are directly aligned with the Common Core standards for Language Arts grades K-5
