Additional information from United Way of the Brazos Valley:
Reading Day 2021 will be a fun way to still “bring volunteers into classrooms” without posing any health risk to students, volunteers or teachers.
In celebration of Dr. Seuss’ birthday in March, United Way will open a library of virtual story times read aloud by local community members for Pre-K to Third Grade teachers to utilize in their classrooms.
Follow these four easy steps to be one of our virtual volunteer readers:
Step 1 – Sign up to share your voice on one of your favorite children’s books.
Step 2 – Check out a short video with tips on recording your book.
Step 3 – Using your cell phone, a Zoom call or other recording software, record yourself reading a children’s book aloud. If using a cell phone, please record in landscape mode.
Step 4 – Once your video is done, upload it to our Google Drive folder no later than February 25.
