Summer Leading to Reading for children who need reading help
Is your child able to listen and talk in English, but needs reading help?
The Toronto Public Library offers a free informal and fun reading practice program this summer.
It is for children who are going to be in grades 2 to 6 in September 2010.
Your child will be partnered with a volunteer tutor to practise reading/writing skills, enjoy books, and do reading-related games and activities.
Pick up an application form from one of the 37 branches that offer the program and return the completed form to the branch by June 26. The reading sessions will be for one hour per week from July 12 to August 28, 2010. Please note that space is limited.
The same library branches also offer the Leading to Reading program during the school year, from October to May. Registration usually takes place in September.
