Welcome to The Sunshine Readers, the literacy arm of Andy Hull’s Sunshine Foundation.
“Reading Matters; You Matter” is our motto.
Our mission is to show children that they matter by showing up to read to their classrooms on a weekly basis. Training and resources are provided to volunteers and the teacher remains in the room; so don’t worry. I guarantee, this will be the most fun you’ve ever had volunteering!
Once you get on our e-mail list you will receive:
- Periodic book suggestions, literacy information and articles. (see attachments)
- A supply of “You Matter” wristbands for your class(es).
- Training materials, supplied at orientation.
- Use www.storylineonline.net as a free resource for training. You can see and hear famous actors reading children’s books aloud. There is also a “lesson plan” of related activities and questions for each story
- Gently used books for your classrooms
