Story Time in the Park

June 6-July 14

Story Time in the Park, an APS Title I Family Engagement initiative, was created to get books into the hands of kids to prevent summer learning loss.

Certified teachers host read-aloud sessions for children and their families at a number of summer lunch meal sites in the city and county.

Families leave each Story Time in the Park session with a copy of the book that was read and shared along with an activity sheet/lesson plan of strategies and supports for reading at home. The aim is to support families so they can guide their children toward reading proficiency and a life-long joy of reading. 

Through modeling and teaching, caring adults learn about the reading process, strategies for reading aloud, and questioning techniques for reading comprehension. Young children who have access to books in the home, and who are read aloud regularly, have the best chance of becoming successful readers.
