America Reads

America Reads of UNI, a work study program, provides after school literacy activities for local schools in the community. In the 2017-2018 school year America Reads is partnered with Lincoln Elementary School in Cedar Falls to offer an America Reads Book Club  program.

 

The Panthers of UNI and the Tigers of Lincoln Elementary (3rd and 4th grades) get together twice a week on Tuesday and Thursday afternoons to engage in small group book clubs.

 

Some examples of the activities provided during book club include reader's theatre, interactive read alouds, and crafts activities related to books the children and leaders are reading together.

 

 

FIRST MEETING:

Tuesday August 29, 2017     3:30-5:30pm     SEC 202E (IRTS)

Plan to come with your laptop or device and ideas that you can share. Each America Reads leader will have her/his own book club group!

This lesson plan frame is used by the America Reads tutors in developing lessons which incorporate children's literature in the lesson activities.
