Story time Story time provides children in Pre-K to second grade a chance to listen to a story, participate in discussions, and learn reading strategies that help them become great readers. They will also participate in a hands on activity and receive a little surprise depending on the book. During Story Time parents should stay in the park and participate in their own book club. The story time groups are much larger (20 students) than the Instructional Book Clubs and cannot be watched by the one teacher. Parent Book Clubs Parents are encouraged to participate in their own book club. With the parent book club, a book is recommended and parents are provided with discussion questions. Usually one of the parents will volunteer to be the leader. This is a great time for parents to meet other parents and kids in the neighborhood.
