CVS Caremark teams up with Scholastic to benefit children with disabilities

WOONSOCKET, R.I. CVS Caremark All Kids Can, a program committed to supporting children with disabilities, has teamed up with Scholastic to distribute free teaching guides and take-home activities for families to help build self-esteem among second graders and promote the acceptance of others.

The All Kids Can Learn teacher’s guide includes an interactive “Class Tree” poster and language arts lessons, helping students identify and write about the qualities that make their class special. The lessons also offer tips to varying instruction to meet the needs of different types of learners. The family take-home activities include a similar “Family Tree” project and language arts lessons.

The teacher and family guides were sent to 10,000 elementary schools nationwide. Teachers who would like to request a copy of the curriculum can e-mail communitymailbox@cvs.com.

CVS Caremark All Kids Can is a program of the CVS Caremark Charitable Trust and CVS Caremark. It is a five-year, $25 million commitment to help children with disabilities.
