YMCA READS! is an Early Intervention reading program that is individualized for each student. Site Coordinator Amy Morales prepares the students for a comprehension lesson using a non-fiction book on pumpkins.
Each student has an binder tailored to his/her needs. The binder also contains the mentors notes on the student’s progress.
Each student is placed in SIPPS with an Initial Placement Test. This test will also be given again before Christmas Break to monitor the child’s progress through the curriculum.
Organization of supplies and materials is essential for using every minute for instruction and mentoring.
YMCA READS! would not exist without the amazing dedication of the volunteers. The volunteers donate their time every week to mentor and tutor the students in reading.
