GREENSBORO, N.C. -- A Greensboro-based poetry company has a great idea for literacy and it's helping kids as young as 4 years old, learn to read.
For four years now, C37WORDS has somehow mixed reading comprehension, grammar, poetry and basketball.
Saturday, the company is hosting Kids Poetry Basketball's Championship Event from 1 pm – 5 pm at the Simkins Sports Pavilion. That is in Greensboro's Barber Park 1500 Dans Road.
The Event is FREE and open to the public.
The executive director, Clement Mallory, and some of the students in the program joined the Good Morning Show to talk more about it how the program is making a difference.
