Story Time with Traveling Stories

Dec
Dec 09 @ 01:00 pm - Dec 09 @ 03:00 pm
Join us for the Grossmont Center Kids Club in the Food Court Patio.

Enjoy a live performance from Hullabaloo from 12pm-1pm. Then, enjoy Story Time with Traveling Stories from 1pm-3pm.

About Traveling Stories:
Kids visit the StoryTent, pick out a book that interests them, and then read it out loud to a volunteer. The volunteer asks engaging questions that help the child build reading comprehension and critical thinking skills. If a child doesn’t know how to read yet, the volunteer will read to them.

Kids earn a book buck for every book they read. If a book is especially long or challenging, they can negotiate with the volunteer for more book bucks. The bucks can be used by a variety of prizes. Through this book buck system we teach kids basic financial literacy skills.

The focus of the StoryTent is creating positive experiences associated with reading, developing strong critical thinking skills and building trust with the families who visit the program.

Food Court Patio

Grossmont Center is more than a mall, it’s a vibrant, lively community gathering spot with plenty of things to do both day and night. In addition to a wide variety of shopping and dining experiences,  the center is the hub in La Mesa for fun and exciting events and helps bring people together to have a good time.

From popular outdoor concerts  and fun kids’ story times and activities to holiday-themed celebrations, Grossmont Center offers events for everyone! The center also hosts community focused events such as pet adoptions and blood drives. In addition to center-wide celebrated events, our stores, restaurants and specialty tenants also host their own unique happenings and programs throughout the year, which also enhances the Grossmont Center experience. Whatever the event is, you’re sure  to have a great time so round up the kids, bring along your pet dog, get a group of friends together or plan a date night and enjoy all that Grossmont Center has to offer!—!
