Spotlight on Reading

March 06, 2017
By Karen Camarota

Last Thursday, March 2, was Read Across America day. This is a day when schools from all over the country commemorate the birthday of Dr. Suess through a celebration of reading. Several classes on our campus joined in the celebration. First grade was blessed with special guest readers throughout the day. Our guest readers included Mr. I, Mrs. Thompson and several first grade parents. They shared their love of reading with the students by reading a favorite book to us. In order to reinforce our knowledge of the literary elements, 4 quilts were placed on the ground. Each quilt represented a literary concept (characters, setting, problem/conflict and solution). After hearing a story each group would determine their literary element. Groups rotated with each guest reader.

The students thoroughly enjoyed the experience of having a parent, administrator or teacher read a favorite book. Our readers brought their favorite book to share that included several Dr. Suess books, I Ain’t Gonna Paint No More! By Karen Beaumont, Tops & Bottoms by Janet Stevens, The 7 Habits of Happy Kids by Sean Covey, This Moose Belongs to Me by Oliver Jeffers, to name a few. The students had a difficult time selecting just one favorite book. So, we decided we enjoyed them all! Special thanks to all our guest readers, and keep on reading!
