Kids in grades K-3 practice their reading skills with teen volunteers.
Trained teen volunteers listen to children in Kindergarten, 1st, 2nd, or 3rd grade who want to practice their reading skills. Teens will ask questions about the book to encourage comprehension. Teens may read to or with children as well. Children enjoy one-on-one interaction with teens, who create a positive reading experience for beginning readers.
This program takes place at the same time as our Homework Club program, every Tuesday-Thursday 4-5pm.
Holiday breaks: There will be no Homework Club or Reading Buddies during the week of Thanksgiving (11/19-11/24). The last day of Homework Club and Reading Buddies this year will be Thursday 12/6, and they will resume on Tuesday, January 8, 2019.
