Dear Friends of Reading to Kids,
JUNE 13TH READING CLUBS
NOT YET CONFIRMED
We are eager for next month's virtual "Friendship & Fun" reading clubs on June 13th,
but first need to confirm with the principals at our schools
that we can hold them.
As soon as we receive that confirmation, anyone who has volunteered with us at any past reading clubs will be able to
submit an RSVP on our home page for those reading

HOW TO 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 add your videos that the kids at our partner schools can find on our website.
