March Into Reading with Us!
What is March Into Reading?
March Into Reading happens the third month of every year at Jubilee JumpStart! It's a special time of year when we bring our entire community together to support families in making reading to children at home an important part of their daily routine. This year the experience will be virtual, but we're sure it will be as much fun as always. Keep reading to find out how you can share in the experience.
JJS Parents and Family Members
Parents, join the challenge and help your child win the prize for the most minutes read in the month of March. Here's how:
Commit to reading to your child at least 15 minutes a day.
Earn points by completing and submitting daily reading logs.
Earn even more points by reading and tuning into a Bedtime Story on our JJS Family Connection Facebook Page. (Pre-K Teacher Ms. Alexus starts us off with Three Billy Goats Gruff.)
Friends, Community Partners and Volunteers
March Into Reading is a great opportunity for our Friends and Community Partners to connect with us! You can join us as a JumpStar Reader to read virtually to one (or two) of our classes. We love seeing your face. Our children love sharing storytime with you. And we're sure a Zoom meeting with a few of our little ones will add something extra special to your weekday routine. Click the yellow button below to sign-up.
Don't have children's books on hand? Create a free account at OpenLibrary.org and check out an eBook to share during your session(s). You can get recommendations, assistance signing up, or answers to your questions by emailing Danica.
Our March 27th Celebration

We plan to end March Into Reading with a bang! Our virtual closing celebration will include prizes for contest winners and family friendly literacy games that parents can enjoy with their children again and again at home. Our special JumpStar Reader, Minh Le, will be LIVE with us to share a couple of his children's books too! Learn more about author Minh Le on his website.
