Weekly trips to the two Leyendo elementary school libraries for story reading has been a huge success. The Spanish speaking volunteer reads a selection from the library to one class of students, involves them in answering comprehension questions and then usually gives time to explore the library books.
Next week is the last week of school until mid-August so this was our final week with the kids. We are hoping to make these lending libraries for at least 5th & 6th Grades next year as the students are frustrated by not having enough time with books they want to read. I did hear from one 3rd Grade teacher that they are spending time in the library, he told me Wednesday was his day. This is very good to hear as we want the books to be read and loved.
