Reading and More
Volunteers from Assistance League® of Georgetown Area assist individual students by mentoring students at Jarrell, and Igo Elementary school. Students and staff select appropriate level books to be read by the student as the mentors listen and provide reading support as needed. A training session at the beginning of the school year provides volunteers with strategies to use for word identification and comprehension.
In addition, Guided Reading and Instructional Literacy materials are purchased for teachers to use with students at each of the elementary schools. These materials are selected by school Reading Specialists.
Members who participate in this philanthropic program find it to be beneficial to the students involved and the members find it to be a rewarding experience.
