Education for youth in third through fifth grades.

Virtual Story Time Series • Interactive • Environmental Learning Fun

From kindergarten through third grade, a child’s ability to read grows by leaps and bounds. Kids first learning to read get more information from listening to books read aloud than from reading them independently. To foster an appreciation for natural resources and encourage students to share the joy of reading, Alabama Extension is pleased to offer virtual story time. Lend an EAR as we explore environmental awareness through reading.
