The Reading Express mobile classroom is a dynamic and fun school on wheels for children 2 months to 4 years of age. The curriculum is designed to develop phonological and print awareness, oral language, fine motor and other early literacy skills through the exploration of books, nursery rhymes, songs, art and play. It will reach into high-need communities throughout Harris County and provide 45-minute interactive classes that will be delivered weekly. Classes will take place either on the bus or in community rooms in apartment complexes and/or other community-based venues.
Targeted participants will be low-income and those who lack access to high-quality early childhood reading readiness programs. The Reading Express is expected to reach at least 80 families at eight different sites each year and will run from September through May.
