Project Focus Areas
Enthusiastic reading teachers will read to students during the 21stCCLC Afterschool Program. Books will include new books, rhyming books, fiction, nonfiction, Caldecott winners, and poetry. Readers will read outside, inside, in reading rockers, in classrooms, and everywhere! Each month, students will select 5-10 books from community-donated books for their home library. Families will be encouraged to read together at home to help increase reading skills. When they read for 25 days for 20 minutes, they will receive a Book Storage box. Family Reading Events will be held and include read aloud tips, book ideas, free books, and reading activities.
