SCI Sibling Brain Builders helps children learn how to form lifelong connections with their siblings and encourage academic achievement and personal development.
Launched in Escambia County elementary and middle schools in 2019, SCI Sibling Brain Builders promote literacy interactions between siblings in innovative ways that are both educational and maintain an element of choice that generates new links between home and school.
At Bellview Middle School, students with siblings ages 0 to 5 will take home lessons, worksheets and books to share and use with their younger brothers and sisters at home. The learning environment promotes brain building in babies while improving kindergarten and school readiness.
At Montclair, Weis, OJ Semmes and Lincoln Park elementary schools, librarians will provide pupils with books and reading materials to take home to share and read with their younger siblings to help stimulate and build their brains.
The goal of SCI’s Brain Builders is to ensure that young children reach developmental milestones and are ready for kindergarten when they began school.
