Dear Friends of Reading to Kids,
4 MORE VOLUNTEER
Chris Martin and Patricia Briggs are back with another clever read-aloud video featuring their dogs!
Both run on our marathon team, so it's no surprise they chose to read Olympig! and end with a craft creating gold medals.
Click on the image above to see them read aloud and discuss Olympig!, or click on the image below to jump right to the craft portion that starts at 18:45!
Another of our volunteers, Laura Reilly, has created three read-aloud videos of her own, and all end with clever crafts the kids can easily create at home!
Click on the image above to see her read aloud When I Grow Up, I Want to be Me, or click on the image below to jump right to the craft portion that starts at 3:21!
You can see her other two videos from the upper right of this newsletter.
Then read on below for how you can become a Reading to Kids star by creating your own videos for the kids!
PLEASE CREATE AND SHARE
YOUR OWN CHAPTER BOOK
Want to bring the joy of reading to the kids at our partner schools while everyone is staying safe at home? Then
create and share your own read-aloud videos that end with a craft!
We're especially looking for videos of 4th and 5th grade "chapter books". We'd like to keep reading alive with the older kids by intriguing them with longer books we have read to them. You may only read aloud the first 40 pages or so, just as we do at our reading clubs.
Similar to all the videos we feature in the upper right of this newsletter,
we'd like to feature your videos that the kids at our partner schools can find on our website.
