LEAP Read-In on the Green

Sponsored by: LEAP

Since 1992, LEAP’s literacy-based academic and social enrichment program has been helping to close the “achievement gap” between low-income and higher-income school children. LEAP’s first goal is to develop active readers who value themselves and education, and are locally and globally minded citizens. Daily read-alouds by counselors are a staple of the Children’s Program, since they engage the children while modeling the use of reading strategies that help young readers acquire background knowledge, develop comprehension skills, and learn critical thinking. The yearly Read-In is a fun way for the children to interact with the New Haven community, to get the kids outdoors, and a unique way to model the love of reading.
