My Experience as a Summer Reading Program Helper
One of the best experiences I had in my life was volunteering at Harold Keller Elementary School’s summer reading lap program. I worked with this program for four summers in a row. I helped the teachers with their children by teaching them reading and writing skills. Also, I would help the teachers get ready for the upcoming school year by helping them decorate the classroom. During the journey, I grew a lot as a person.
The first summer I worked was my freshman year. The teacher I was assigned to was Ms. Thomson. She was so nice. I said, “I am so scared, and I do not know if the children are going to like me.” “Just be yourself and kids would love you,” she said. This program would last three weeks of the summer. I would help the children by improving their reading and writing skills. We would read different books every day and answer questions to make sure the children understood the story. The children would learn synonyms, antonyms, word prefixes and suffixes and much more. I had a great first year helping the children improve their reading skills and getting ready for the upcoming school year. Also, I helped Ms. Thomson get her classroom ready for the school year by preparing and creating her word wall and bulletin board. This was my first year working with this school. I learned so much that I am excited to be coming back next year.
I had so much fun the first year that I came back and worked the summer reading camp…
