If you’re looking for a fun, educational activity for your child this summer, check out Story Time in the Park.

APS Title I created the program to get books into the hands of kids and prevent summer learning loss. Teachers will host read aloud sessions for children and their families Monday through Thursday at several summer lunch meal sites in Albuquerque and Bernalillo County. Lunch is served Monday through Friday between 11:30 a.m. and 1 p.m.

Story Time in the Park kicks off on June 10 and will run through July 18.

Families leave each Story Time in the Park Session with a copy of the book that was read and an activity sheet/lesson plan of strategies and supports for reading at home.

The program strives to support families so they can guide their children toward reading proficiency and a lifelong joy of reading. Research shows that young children who have access to books in the home and who are read to regularly have the best chance of becoming successful readers.

Through modeling and teaching, adults taking part in Story Time in the Park sessions learn about the reading process, strategies for reading aloud, and questioning techniques for reading comprehension.
