Read Aloud as an After School Enrichment
Read Aloud is on a mission to build a universal read aloud habit! When caregivers read aloud it helps prepare children for reading and learning. According to Read Aloud, just 15 minutes of daily reading aloud from birth to age 8 can change the face of education in this country.
To embark on your own reading aloud journey, join their interactive 21-day read aloud challenge and get to reading!
Here's how it works:
1) Accept the challenge by posting a photo or video of you reading aloud with the children in your care on Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram and continue reading aloud for at least 15 minutes for 21 days in a row. Please tag @Read Aloud for Facebook; @ReadAloud_org for Twitter; and @read_aloud_15 for Instagram with #21DayReadAloud.
2) Challenge three more people with a child from birth to age 8 to accept the #21DayReadAloud Challenge and pass it on.
3) Continue to post on social media, using the tags @Read Aloud for Facebook; @ReadAloud_org for Twitter; and @read_aloud_15 for Instagram with #21DayReadAloud, so Read Aloud can share and celebrate your success while helping spread the importance of reading aloud.
4) Keep track of your progress on the 21-Day Tracker and use the tips from our 21-Day Content Calendar. You can find lots of support materials here.
