Volunteers needed for the Multilit Reading Program.
Can you spare as little as 30 minutes a week to work one-to-one with students in Year 2 and above?
Mrs Robyn McDonald, our Learning and Support Teacher, co-ordinates a reading program called Multilit (Making Up Lost Time In Literacy) a well-researched program which was created at Macquarie Uniersity.
Multilit involves intensive, systematic instruction in phonics and word attach skills, sight word recognition and supported book reading in a one-to-one context.
Training and support will be given to new volunteers - unfortunately it is not possible to bring toddlers when volunteering unless they can play quietly and not disturb the students who are doing the program. Please contact the school or see Mrs McDonald on Mondays, Tuesdays or Thursdays (until 12:30) when she is at Rydalmere Public School.
