Ready 2 Read El Dorado (R2R) is a free reading program for children in July – to help them strengthen and maintain reading skills, to return to school ready to learn.
The goal is for all children to become successful readers. R2R helps children improve their reading skills by engaging in fun activities with a volunteer Reading Buddy.
Kids ages 6 – 9 attend two 45 minute sessions a week: Mondays & Wednesdays, or Tuesdays & Thursdays.
Kids ages 4 – 5 attend story time groups on Fridays, to build reading readiness skills.
The Registration Form lists likely reading sites in El Dorado. All sessions are in the afternoon.
Pre-registration is required for children to participate.
Parents and caregivers are encouraged to register children online. Details and a link to the Registration form is available at KN2E.org. Or text Judie (405-308-9158) for a hotlink to the Registration Form.
Children who participate in Ready 2 Read receive a snack before reading sessions, and also fresh fruit and veggies to take home. Participating households are eligible for weekly drawings of groceries to prepare a family dinner at home.
The deadline to register a child is May 31, 2021.
