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! (Click on the image below for more information about the Raising a Reader Program!)

“Reading Sticks With Us”
 Did you know that every time you read, whether fact or fiction, something is bound to stick with you? This year we will be collecting what we’ve learned from the books we read on our “Reading Sticks With Us” 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 cactus-themed bulletin board
