Books for Kids Summer Online Reading Opportunity for Students in First, Second and Third Grades

Does your first, second or third grader need more reading practice?  Trained Books for Kids volunteers will listen to your child read, review vocabulary words, and encourage your child to become a better reader.  This program is FREE.  For more information or to register your child visit
Volunteers with the Books for Kids program have committed to "virtually" becoming a literacy mentor for your 1st - 3rd grade students. Families can opt in to schedule a time, after school hours, to meet with a virtual volunteer.  The trained volunteers will read with the child and will introduce and then practice comprehension and fluency games developed by our curriculum team.  I've included a script if you are interested in doing a connect ed message.  The volunteers are ready they are waiting for kids.
