For parents and caregivers: Are you looking for a way to keep your child reading during the summer that doesn’t feel like school but still offers guided support with a certified teacher? Look no further! This is the perfect alternative for “tutoring light,” where your child can socialize safely with peers, receive instruction from an expert educator, and stay engaged with reading (preventing summer slide!).
For kids: Tired of book clubs that read books you don’t like? Want to join a super fun community of readers? Unlike most book clubs where everyone reads the same thing, you pick the titles you want to read. YOU choose a title to read and discuss. Members bring in at least one book each and discuss it with the rest of the club (1-2 minutes). After all the reviews are done, members are free to pick a partner to chat with. Everyone will be able to participate in book-related activities. Discussion questions, themes, activities, and recommendations will be provided.
Led by: This Reading Group will be taught by Karrisa Fabin, a tutor of The Community Classroom who holds certifications in Library K-12, Special Education PK-12, and Instructional Technology. She is also certified through the Virtual High School Collaborative. Karrisa holds a Masters in Library Science and Technology from Simmons University and a Bachelor of Arts in Elementary and Special Education from Bay Path University. She has over 20 years of teaching and tutoring experience in grades PreK-12 with a focus on special education needs.
Please note: This opportunity is limited to 15 readers and open to rising 4th-8th grade students in Florence, MA, and nationally.
