TIME: 30 MINUTES
Read to a classroom of children, Pre-K through fourth grade once a week. Under the watchful eyes of the teacher, who remains in the room during the session, read books from different literary genres, introduce new vocabulary, reinforce the importance of sequencing, details and main idea, model good reading, interact with the students by discussing the ideas and messages in the books, expand background knowledge and share the joy of reading. Have fun!
TIME: 60 MINUTES
Work individually with first and second-grade children once a week to strengthen their reading skills.
This program involves listening to students practice reading aloud. This helps students enrich their vocabulary and improve their fluency and comprehension.
In March, Rolling Readers has an Annual Book Giveaway. A new hardcover book, selected specifically for each grade level, is given to the students as a gift from their volunteer. The children are urged to take the book home and share it with family and friends. For some of these children, our book is the only book in the home.
4 HOURS A MONTH
IS ALL IT TAKES
That’s right. In just 30-minutes to an hour each week, Rolling Readers volunteers share the joy of reading and assisting children in developing better reading skills.
All that is required to volunteer with Rolling Readers is to enjoy working with children, have a love of reading and thirty minutes to one hour per week of time available. Our volunteers come from all backgrounds, ranging in age from 18 years old and up.
