during the last weeks I got to know about the organisation Read to a Child. I first got in contact through Lynne Blaszak and her blog First Thing Tomorrow. She is one of the many mentors who spend an hour a week to read to and of course with a child. On her blog, Lynne shares some of her lunchtime stories.
The Lunchtime Story time is a program designed to make volunteering easy. One lunch hour a week the volunteer visits an elementary school for a read-aloud session. He or she has one reading partner at a time. That way, you help to improve the reading skills, attitudes and confidence of a child. I’m absolutely fond of this program. Volunteers are asked to commit to one school year in order to get the chance to create a strong bond with their reading partners.
