JCC Squirrel Hill: Carnegie Library

Wednesday, December 25, 2019 @ 11:00 AM - 1:00 PM

Free
Carnegie Library

The Carnegie Library of Pittsburgh’s Bringing Libraries and Schools Together program visits elementary school classrooms throughout the city to engage young learners in a love of literacy. As part of this program, 3rd grade students write entries in reading journals, answering questions related to books they’ve read. For example, 3rd graders were recently asked to imagine themselves having a sidekick, and to describe what that sidekick would be like!

Volunteers help by responding to the journal prompts like reading pen pals! They might comment on the stories that the students wrote, draw pictures, or leave stickers. This “pen pal” exchange in the journal is very exciting for students, and helps to encourage them to reflect on what they are reading.

Must be age 16 or older.

A maximum of 25 participants can be accepted.

If you require accommodations for a disability, please contact Bex Frankeberger at bfrankeberger@jfedpgh.org.
