Jacee signed up for two visits to the Excelsior Boys & Girls Club this month; this was our first visit. Summer school was being held at the club. The room where we worked had a 5th grade class, but the kids who read to Jacee were 2nd graders. Jacee got to greet all the 5th graders as well as the 2nd graders who read to her.
Seven children read to Jacee. The books read to her were an Archie comics collection, Dr. Suess’s One Fish Two Fish Red Fish Blue Fish, My Friend Chicken (she was read it twice by two different children), Dork Diaries, A Good Night Walk, and Friends Telling Tales.
One of the 2nd graders who read to Jacee was afraid of dogs, but by the end of her session the student was happily petting Jacee.
This was a great facility. Jacee will be happy to return later this month.
