Join the fun with APIE, Univision and Austin Public Libraries
Have you joined us for Monday storytelling hours at Austin Public Libraries?
The program stems from our partnership with Univision and Austin Public Libraries, where five libraries are hosting storytelling times in Spanish for first through third graders on Mondays at 2 p.m. Univision reporters and anchors are doing the reading and the kids love the experience. Our Classroom Coaching program manager for 2ndgrade Reading (offered in English and in Spanish as Compañeros en Lectura) is at each session and said yesterday at Terrazas was especially fun. Author René Colato Lainez was there to share from his book “I am Rene, the Boy” and other books.
Join us August 15th at Cepeda and learn more about the program (in English or Spanish) here on our website. If you’re interested in reading for children, please consider joining our Classroom Coaching program this school year. By volunteering just 45 minutes, once weekly in the classrooms with 1-3 students you will help children improve fluency, comprehension and literacy. It’s a lot of fun for the volunteers, too.
