Maine Agriculture in the Classroom


2023 Read ME Agriculture


The "Read ME Agriculture" 2023 Program is coming on March 20 – 24, for grade Pre-K to 4 Maine students. This year's book is "Honeybee, The Busy Life of Aphis Mellifera" by Candice Fleming, and amazingly illustrated by Eric Rohmann. Every classroom that participates will receive the hardcover book and accompanying Educator’s Guide with 8 aligned classroom activities. The 2023 program will be a hybrid model where classrooms can decide from in-person and virtual options. Classrooms may choose their own reader or ask MAITC for help. Separate Grade PK – 2, and 2 – 4 virtual readings will be available through the week.

Modeled after our highly successful 2022 program and to best serve the hundreds of classrooms throughout our state that participate in Read ME each year, the 2023 program will be a hybrid model where classrooms can decide the delivery method that works best for them. Options will include in-person and virtual readings. Classrooms can locate their own reader or ask MAITC to help. If you are interested please complete this google form and submit by February 10, 2023. Then MAITC will contact you to fine tune your participation.

*For individual teachers wishing to register multiple classrooms a form will be sent by email after receiving your response.
