Bookworms at Timber Grove Elementary School – VIRTUAL

  • Posted 3 weeks ago

Join Bookworms to share in the gift of reading during a series of monthly reading sessions with kindergarten through first grade students at Timber Grove Elementary School.

Volunteers will read 1-2 books to a kindergarten or first grade classroom from the comfort of their home computer. Virtual reading will be done through Google Meet and the volunteer needs a computer with reliable Wi-Fi. Volunteers will receive a Google Meet link as well as assigned reading time and classroom (kindergarten or first grade) prior to the Bookworms session. Reading sessions will take place between 10:30am and 11:30am on the monthly dates below.
