The Literacy project at Southeast

At Southeast Christian Church, we value relationships. By offering free literacy support we hope to come alongside you as you enjoy the parenting years. Please look at the event's/classes we offer below. Building relationships that endure is our hope for our community.

Reading Partners

Expand your Reader's reading performance with a Reading Partner through a once weekly, thirty minute, one to one Zoom Meeting. We aim to support Readers by coming alongside. 

Reading aloud has many lasting benefits:

-the Readers confidence grows,

-accuracy and word recognition increases,

-volume of texts increases,

-knowledge base is built-up,

-understanding what is read increases,

-the list continues...

 

The session consists of:

-a Reading Partner from Southeast Christian Church (Each Reading Partner will have completed a background check)

-shared texts which both Reader and Reading Partner can view

-Reader reads, Reading Partner listens,

-Competent Readers practice their oral communication skills by verbally speaking the story. They are praised for using, 

-fluency,

-expression,

-intonation,

-attention,

-etc.

 

All of these skills are needed to grow competency in communicating verbally and in writing.

Weekly Reading Clubs

The Read Aloud Clubs at SCC gather weekly through Zoom Meetings and Google Classrooms. The Google Classroom is where support materials are shared. Read aloud gatherings through Zoom give all participants the opportunity to hear stories with others. Because "Breakout" rooms are available, small group conversations are possible. All this happens through the support of retired classroom teachers who continue to relish their time with readers of all ages. Open-ended, compelling questions fuel our conversations. Although we hope the participants gain much from hearing wonderful stories, our main goal is connection. We are coming to the table as people who hear and people who listen. In conversing about books, we are not looking for a particular answer. We all come to a story from our own unique place. We look forward to conversations with our participants, always interested in what they think without intention to shape or change their thoughts. 

It is our goal to be communicators who want to connect.

 

Our Middle School Group meets from 4-5 PM on Tuesdays.

Our Elementary Group meets from 4-5 PM on Thursdays.

Read Aloud Pill

If a pill, packing the "read aloud" power of academic and social benefits were invented, parents would go to the highest extremes to assure their little ones receive "the read-aloud pill".

 

You are invited to join us on the first Friday of every month from 1:30-2:30 PM to gather via Zoom with other like-minded parents. Be inspired and supported as you build relationships with your young child(ren) and prepare them for academic success. Our meetings focus on all things "literacy." You will be encouraged by parents, grandparents and even great grandparents. Retired teachers and homeschool moms will share literacy advice. Most importantly though, you will be side-by-side with other parents who, like you, are presently in the parenting trenches. 


**Would you like an in person Read Aloud Pill? We will meet once a month at Southeast at 9am. This meeting will take place every third Saturday of the month starting November 20th!
