"The more you read, the more things you will know.The more that you learn, the more places you will go." Dr. Seuss
Read Across America week was a wonderful celebration at West Morgan Elementary! Every fourth grade student and classroom kept a reading log list. We competed with Danville Neel Elementary school to see what school could read the most books. Mrs. Casey's class tallied their voted every morning. Each group of four students would count their books, and then the class counted the total amount. We read picture books daily to students, and they were given plenty of reading time. Parent and even Grandparent volunteers came to read to the students'. On Friday, we had a read in. What is a read in? The students' brought snacks, beach towels, and tons of books to read all day long. Students were also allowed to bring their tablets; for reading only of course! I enjoyed seeing the students so excited to read! Students were even encouraged to reread their favorite books. Anyway, the results came in Friday afternoon, and we WON!
What are some fun ways you encourage reading in the classroom?
