Our local Rotary club wants to have volunteer readers come into the school next year. Anybody ever use this program? How did it work out?

We have had rotary readers in our classroom for years. Generally, the way it works at my school is the principal sends a list around to sign up for a reader. The list usually has the reader's available dates and times so you can choose the one that fits your schedule best. The students enjoy having someone other than me read to them however often it is, and many times the reader seems to enjoy it just as much, often building a relationship with the entire class. Overall, it is a good program.

Our rotary club comes on DEAR day (Drop Everything and Read- Dr. Seuss's Birthday). They bring a book for each child and often other treats. My kids always love it!

We have at the school I am at (never had it at the other 2 schools). I love it, the rotary reader is assigned a class (I think they can request, not sure) and they come and read on "read Across America" day (I think that's the same as Dr. Suess day?). It depends on the reader, some are REALLY into it others literally come read a book & leave. I usually have REALLY good ones & the students love it as well as me

I was afraid this program might be more trouble than it was worth. Based on the experiences you all shared, I'm going to go for it.
