Emily Mull flipped through a colorful collection of books situated in a plastic bin in the back of the library at her school, in Carmichael.
This is her favorite part of San Juan Family Literacy, the summer program that provides opportunities for families and students to discover new favorite books together.
“They don’t just give you books to read – you can pick them out,” said Mull, a fourth grader at Coyle.
Students and families at seven Schools are invited to continue participating in San Juan Family Literacy, a fun, interactive reading program designed to nurture children’s love of books.
The program is held on a drop-in basis from 8:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. each Monday through July 23. Parents are required to stay with their children.
San Juan Family Literacy will be available to students in kindergarten through fourth grade only at the following sites: , Kingswood, Coyle, Dyer-Kelly, Greer, Skycrest and .
At each Monday session, children have the opportunity to check out books that interest them and are at their independent reading level. Teachers provide opportunities for students to participate in read-aloud and shared reading activities to enhance comprehension and fluency skills.
PRIZES: Each time a student attends, they will be entered into a drawing for a fun prize. Students who are selected must be present on the final Monday, July 23, to receive their prize.
