Virtual Read to Me

A few minutes can change a life.

Two-thirds (2/3) of Georgia’s children cannot read on grade level by the time they get to 3rd grade.

Inspire a love of reading and make it fun by sharing some of our pre-selected e-books and animated films.

Engage students in fun, short activities between lessons that recharge the brain and refocus students!
