Enrichment

Life360 Community Services offers weekly enrichment activities along with our afterschool super snacks. We meet our school partners’ needs by investing in their educational vision, and our research led us to design the activities described below.

Elementary: Interactive Read Aloud Packs

We provide each elementary classroom with weekly read-aloud packs. The reading packs are made up of two parts:

1. Character-themed read-alouds with conversation prompts
2. Interactive read-aloud guides

Character themes include:
