New Haven Reads is continuing their awesome opportunity for students in K-5th grade to participate in our virtual field trips along with receiving books to add to their at home library. There are still spots available for teachers and students who have already participated in our virtual field trips.
Our virtual field trips are similar to our in-person field trips. Teachers receive up to five books for each student to take home during these virtual field trips.
Within the 30 minute to an hour period of time our Book Bank Director, Victoria Smith, reads stories to the students via google meet.
“We are excited to be able to present these field trips to students with an opportunity to receive books as well as an experience to have someone else other than their teachers to read to them,” says Victoria Smith.
There are still plenty of open spots for our virtual field trips! Visit our New Haven Reads website, then click on the program calendar, in which you can sign up for a virtual field trip event. You can also click the following link.
