Are you a teacher at heart? Do you love to see children with smiles on their faces? Do you enjoy listening to children’s squeals of delight? Can you spare a couple of hours on Saturday, March 24? If you answered Yes to any of these questions, please consider volunteering to help at our Storybook Character Breakfast.
The Greater Boston Council will hold a Storybook Character Breakfast at the McGlynn Elementary School in Medford on March 24, 2018 from 9:00 a.m. to 12 noon. This is a joint program between GBC and the Medford Family Network. The agency will provide the facility, the food, and the children. We will be providing the books, literature, workforce, Curious George, and the craft supplies.
The parents and children, from preschool to grade two, will enjoy a wonderful buffet breakfast, while they are treated to Curious George, who will pose for photographs with the children and help entertain them. After breakfast, members of the Greater Boston Council will read to the children in small groups, to provide a positive model for parents to emulate. Other council members will work at craft tables to help the children create a picture of a storybook character or a scene from a favorite book. Children will also be able to design their own bookmarks.
To culminate the event, the children will leave the breakfast with a book of their own choosing. The parents will leave with an informational packet containing literature about reading and literacy. Council members will be available to answer literacy questions and provide a positive connection with parents in a community setting, encouraging reading for enjoyment.
