Volunteer: Little Scholars Reading Program

The Little Scholars Reading Program is a nonprofit program that brings books to life for children by reading aloud and connecting the theme of the book to fun activities. Little Scholars is for children in daycare centers in the Robeson County area. Volunteers read a Dolly Parton Imagination Library (DPIL) book to the children and then complete an activity related to the theme of the book. Little Scholars uses a specific method to read to children. This method is called dialogic reading and is designed for preschoolers. Dialogic reading prompts children to be actively involved when an adult is reading aloud. The basis for this reading method is asking simple questions and following up with expanded questions. It enhances and improves literacy and language skills (http://dialogic-reading.blogspot.com/). Volunteers will undergo training.

If interested, please contact the United Way of Robeson County office at (910) 739-4249 and ask for Tomeika Munn or email uwrdolly@att.net. You can also stop by the office at 2512-A Fayetteville Rd, Lumberton, NC 28358.
