Literacy Programs

It’s our goal to enhance our youths’ full potential as readers, creators, and community members. 

Ages 5 - 12

Learning to read was prohibited for centuries to prevent people from being informed. Encourage children to read and to read often. Join Royale readers every second Saturday in a comfortable environment suited to encourage the fundamentals of turning a page of a book.

Ages 5 - 12

Writing is an essential part of every career. This fun writer’s workshops help students hone their skills to be effective writers while working towards an ultimate goal of becoming published.

All Ages

Royale Cohesive is always looking for new perspectives. We encourage guest speakers to share stories, lead read alouds, entertain our Royale readers, or all three.

Ages 5 - 12

Have your school partner with us as we celebrate our love for literacy with students who appreciate reading. Royale Cohesive helps students get excited about reading, learn how to publish your own book, and even give students a copy of one of our books.

Ages 5 - 12

A featured book is paired with an art or craft to help deepen youths’ knowledge. Children use math skills to build shapes and count numbers, their engineering skills to construct crafts, and learn the cultural message behind it all. The cross-content connections help children solidify their learning.

Ages 6 - 25

June 2019 our members will host a youth segment on KUAW – 98.5 FM. The children will be trained for 30 minutes by a sound engineer on the workings of the radio station before they go on air and discuss their entrepreneurship projects. Tune in at 2:30 PM every second Saturday.

Ages 5 - 12

Reading aloud increases motivation, curiosity, and vocabulary. During Royale Cohesive read alouds children read to one another. Guest speakers can also lead read alouds, help kids read, and lead discussion sessions about the featured book.
