At Summit Community Center, 100 Morris Ave, Summit, NJ

Reading Club for Grades Pre K and K (4:30-5:15)
Reading Club for Grades 1-3 (5:15-6:00):

Each class will capitalize on strengths, instill self-confidence and foster a Can-Do attitude to help children read more confidently. Classes will begin with a group activity using books, games, music and other activities to improve decoding, fluency in oral reading, oral response to questions and overall comprehension. Classes will end with small group break outs working with mentors on reading and specific skills.


Book Club for Grades 4-7 (6:00-6:45):

Each class will capitalize on strengths, instill self-confidence and foster a Can-Do attitude to help children read more confidently. We want to help students learn reading in an embarrassment and failure free setting. Classes will be based around group reading activities of books. Social skills will be developed through discussion of the readings each week.
