Free At-Home Reading Resources for ALL K-2 Families

The Tennessee Department of Education (TDOE) is partnering with Governor’s Early Literacy Foundation (GELF) to provide at-home reading resources to all Tennessee families of K–2 children at no cost (or free of charge). Through this partnership, GELF and TDOE want to encourage at-home reading practice to help young learners become stronger readers outside of the classroom.
Based on a child’s grade level, they will receive 

  • The At-Home Decodable Book Series, a collection of 7 booklets containing 20+ exciting stories full of sounds and words to practice 
  • Age-appropriate high-quality books from Scholastic.

How Families Can Order

All Tennessee families can order one booklet pack for each of their kindergarten, 1st, and 2nd grade students at this link, which can also be found on the button below. The order will be delivered to the mailing address provided and fulfilled in the order it was received.​​​​
