The Rye Free Reading Room is recruiting students from kindergarten to 3rd grade for our new Reading Buddies program where children will read to residents from the Osborn Home. My kids have participated in this program and really enjoyed it.
Pairing young readers with older listeners will help kids strengthen their reading skills by improving vocabulary, pronunciation, comprehension, and gain reading and public speaking confidence. Together everyone benefits from hearing stories read aloud and by engaging in this personal interaction and different experience. Please contact the Children's Room at 914-231-3162 for more information or to sign up.
