Readers to Leaders
A reading enrichment program for Pre-K students
What better way to turn love into action than to create love – a love of reading that is! As Dr. Seuss once said, “The more that you read, the more things you will know. The more that you learn, the more places youll go.”
Our Readers to Leaders program is currently on hold due to Covid restrictions. Our goal is simple: to work together to help each child love reading. Reading and listening to a story open up new worlds, help develop the brain, and increase focus and other important skills. While skills are important, the best thing about sharing stories or books is the fun you can have together.
We visit a Pre-K classroom once a month and read a book, discuss the theme, sing songs and move around, and then work on a craft related to the book/theme. We provide a healthy snack and give each child a book of their own to bring home. This fulfills our secondary goal of helping to build a home library for each child.
We are planning to re-start our Readers to Leaders program as soon as it is feasible.
