In an article, posted at this weeks Reading Rockets site, an article was posted which provides an enticing invitation to learn more about this program that was started in 1993. Given that many parents can't find time to read to their children, the Performing Artists for Literacy in Schools designed a program of "volunteers who read aloud weekly to children through out the school year." An instructional moment, using your Elmo and your computer/lab top, will promote an enthusiastic "read aloud" on a weekly basis for your students.
