FORT BEND COUNTY (Covering Fort Bend News) - The Literacy Council of Fort Bend County is piloting a Family Summer Reading Camp, inviting members of the community, including esteemed community volunteers and local authors, to read and actively engage with children and their parents over the summer.
“The purpose of the Family Summer Reading Camp is twofold, first, to help show parents how to teach critical reading comprehension skills which are important to teaching children to read and two, improving their reading comprehension skills as adult learners,” said Literacy Council Program Director Alisha Procter.
Over the course of the Family Summer Reading Camp, children and their parents have been reading together and participating in other expressive activities, such as painting and playing games, to help bring the words in their books to life.
Procter is excited about the outcome of the Literacy Council’s inaugural summer camp so far.
“It has been super successful and rewarding for the children, parents, volunteers and staff of the Literacy Council of Fort Bend County,” Procter said.
