This week in Adults Reading to Children
(ARC) volunteers braved the snow, and arrived at George Mitchell School in time to read to their beloved students. Volunteers did everything from winter related Arts and Crafts to mentoring in the completion of reading activities. One student in particular helped a kindergarten classroom cut out snowflakes to decorate their windows. The kindergarteners were not only very proud of their work but also, they were very happy to have a Colby mentor help them.
Another Colby volunteer took their second grade mentee to the library and guided them in reading books about whales. Afterwards, the volunteer helped the student complete activities related to the whale readings, from coloring pages to activities related to comprehension.
Another great week for ARC!
