Ryleigh loves finding a book and seeing what it’s all about. When
asked what this second grader’s favorite book is, she rattles off
“I like reading because you get to go on new adventures and
sometimes they’re animals and sometimes they’re real stories that
actually happened,” Ryleigh said.
The summer before she started first grade, Ryleigh started
attending the Boys & Girls Club of Placer County’s reading
program funded through United Way’s STAR Readers project. She was
reading proficiently, but her mom wanted to make sure she stayed
on track during the long summer months. She worked on letter
naming fluency, sight words, sounding out unfamiliar words, using
Leap Pads to increase her reading competency and reading
one-on-one with volunteers.
