This is: That Group That Reads To Children (and does a lot of other cool stuff too!)! On a weekly basis (or more), you can go into preschools and read to a classroom of students for 10-15 minutes, and then spend the rest of the time free-playing, making crafts, playing outside, playing music, giving more individualized lessons, helping out the teachers, etc.
There are 7 preschools within walking distance that we will volunteer at: Head Start, Preschool Town and Country, Even Start, the 2 Neighborhood Preschools, Christ Lutheran, and St. Mary’s.
The schedule is very flexible; the preschools are as excited about the group as you better be. Whatever day of the week, time of the day, and interval of the time that works best for your schedule (preferably mornings and for an hour), so long as you can make it every week.
For more information and to sign up for a time-slot, email me at dglasspiegel(at)wes.
Also, there will be an info session. If you can’t make it, let me know?
