New (FREE) Book & Curriculum for K-5 on Alex’s Lemonade Stand

Posted by on August 31, 2009

FREE Book and Curriculum for K-5 Students!

Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation is proud to introduce our exciting new service-learning program, whose name was derived from the same principle that Alex herself followed: “When life hands you lemons, make lemonade.”  Aptly named “Lemonade from Lemons,” this program aims to teach Alex’s inspiring message of making a difference, helping others, and overcoming obstacles to school-aged children (K-5) through a children’s book and service-learning lesson plans.  Available through our website for FREE to any school across the country, educators may request a book and download the curriculum online at

Our service-learning curriculum is comprised of 3 units each for Grades K-1, 2-3, and 4-5 and was developed with emphasis on enhancing the literacy skills of children while teaching them about the “Power of One.”  It is also geared towards reinforcing key lessons from our children’s book, Alex & the Amazing Lemonade Stand.  The lesson plans includes supplemental handouts as well as special instructions for English as a second language learners, struggling learners, and gift & talented students.  For teachers new to service-learning, materials explaining this method of teaching will also be included.

In addition to our website, ALSF hopes to provide materials for this program to underserved communities via a targeted mailing.  Those children, many whom face financial, academic and behavioral challenges, may not be aware that that they too possess the power to make a difference.

Lemonade from Lemons is a pilot program designed to bring ALSF’s message of making a difference, helping others, and overcoming obstacles to school aged children.  This program is made possible with support by TD Bank.  Please contact Shirley Moy, Resource Coordinator, for any questions or comments at or by phone: 610-649-3034.
