Jefferson OnSchooler Reading Club 2018
Time & Location
About the Event
Welcome to OnSchooler Reading Club! This free tutoring session will be held at the Jefferson Public Library (Main Branch) on Tuesday and Thursdays 11 to noon in August.
This intense, 70-lesson program quickly trains students in the pronunciation, spelling, meaning and usage of over 500 words most commonly used in English. It is targeted for 3rd grade students, or any student who is able to sound out words but is not yet a fluent, independent reader.
Every lesson is fully translated into Spanish, so students can completely understand the instructions and the contextual sentences.
Please note some special features for this session:
- The class is limited to 30 students and we may be filming during the class to create training videos for schools and material for our Facebook page and other social media.
- Each student needs to bring a laptop, tablet or smartphone with wi-fi for the online lessons, and some headphones.
- To keep this session completely free, we're asking each family to provide one adult volunteer each week, either Tuesday or Thursday. The volunteer should be at least 14 years old and fluent in English or Spanish. The volunteers will help with setup, check-in, using the online lessons, updating the progress chart and cleanup. (You can request a waiver if no adult is available at this time.)
- Most students will not finish all 70 lessons by the end of the 6-week program, so all participants will receive free enrollment in our private Facebook Live group which will meet weekly through December.
