Join us as the College of Charleston participates in local schools for Read Across America. You will have the ability to select the school, the time slot and the grade level for which you would like to read. Each time slot is 30 minutes per classroom; therefore, we recommend volunteers register for two timeslots or classrooms. Two classrooms are not required and of course volunteers can sign up for more than two if theyâ€™d like.
weâ€™ve created some tips and tricks for volunteers to prepare them to be a classroom reader as well as compiled a list of suggested books if volunteers were interested in purchasing their own book to bring with them. Volunteers are not required to bring or purchase a book, as the teachers will have some available, but if you are interested in purchasing and donating a book to the classroom there are some suggestions according to each grade level.
