LARIMER, CO – Because of COVID-19 pandemic, almost all community services in Larimer County stopped since March 2020. Non-profit organizations and volunteer community services must comply with no direct contact policy, while the need for services was at its greatest.
The education department is one of the entities that has hugely impacted by the pandemic. Both school and parents are struggling to make sure the kids are learning during the virtual school.
Larimer County Criminal Justice Services has reached out to local schools and asked the teachers about the challenges during the online learning. One main reason why online learning process is really hard is because all the physical materials that were used for a whole class must be duplicated for the individual learning at home.
Because of this, the Criminal Justice Services comes up with the Book Box Project to help solve the problem. This project put all the classroom materials into boxes and deliver them to each of the individuals.
All the classroom materials, such as geo-blocks, sight word flashcards, fraction strips, dice, and other teaching materials were put together into “book boxes” to support those with online remote learning.
The box also includes books, writing utensils, drink mix, journal, bookmarks, stickers, and four craft-type projects. Each of the box is labelled based on the genre of the book inside. All the boxes are wrapped in an attractive wrapping like a gift.
This innovative approach by the Book Box Project has help a lot of kids and parents who are struggling to find the drive of learning in front of their screen.
