“Reading Lets You Fly”
Did you know that when you read you are not only reading the words on the page? As you read, your brain is busy working to combine everything you know about what you are reading, so that you can make sense of a text. As you read your brain is filled with memories, thoughts, and images!
This year we will be collecting what we think about when we read on our “Reading Let’s You Fly” reading response forms. Forms are located on top of our “Free Books” bookshelf, near the front office. Students who turn in completed responses will share their work on the morning announcements, and will be asked to post their work on our hot-air balloon bulletin board.
Raising a Reader
In grades Pre-K 3 and Pre-K 4, students and families will enjoy the gift of the “Raising a Reader” program. Raising a Reader is a revolving book library, where students receive a book bag filled with 3-4 books of their choosing to read for one week. Books are then returned and new books are supplied. The purpose of “Raising a Reader” is to ensure all students are engaged in nightly read-alouds with adults. Reading involves 17 brain regions that integrate hearing, vision, judgment, and memory. So reading to children is an easy way to help their brains grow!
