Free Online Literacy Sessions
The Anderson Reading Clinic at Appalachian State University is hosting free literacy sessions online for children in kindergarten through eighth-grade. This is not a research study, just an interactive and inclusive literacy opportunity. Here are some of the fun things planned for this summer:
VIRTUAL BOOK CLUBS FOR CHILDREN: These online book clubs will be led by Appstate Reading Education faculty and graduate students. These are free and open to all K-8th grade students. Sign-ups will be posted soon on the Anderson Reading Clinic Facebook page.
VIRTUAL DAILY LITERACY-CASTS: These free, interactive online literacy experiences will be led by Appstate Reading Education faculty and graduate students and will begin June 2, 2020. Participants will be led through interactive shared reading and writing experiences in a large group. Participants will also break off into smaller online break out sessions with Reading Education faculty and graduate students for more targeted practice with the concepts presented during the larger session. This will also allow the children to have more interaction with each other in smaller groups. The literacy casts will occur Monday-Thursday at 10:30 AM. We use a password protected Zoom link. If your child would like to participate, complete this Google form, and Tonya will send you the password.
If you would like to see some of the writing created by kids in previous literacy casts, check out the Anderson Reading Clinic website. If you have any questions, please feel free to email Tonya at firstname.lastname@example.org. Tonya will be in the literacy sessions and can answer questions related to the literacy casts. We hope to see some of you on June 2nd!
David, Sydney, Bronwyn and Tonya believe everyone can learn to read and write. We're doing our best to make that happen.
