Monthly reading incentives take students to public library
As part of our monthly reading incentives, students were asked to read 350 minutes in the month of March. From all those students, we selected 2 students randomly to be “Student Readers” at the public library during their Friday Story Hour. Grady Meek, 2nd grader, and Asuka Cusick, 3rd grader, were our lucky students! Each story hour has a theme. This Friday’s happened to be REPTILES! There was a visit from some real-life reptiles, including a snake, lizard and turtle! The fabulous Rhonda Groth at the public library led the story hour students through some additional learning, songs and finger plays.
Our students were honored to take on this leadership role. They practiced reading their selected books related to reptiles many times, so as to put their best foot forward in reading for our future Black River Falls students that were present. They did an outstanding job and were so excited! They even had parents and family members who joined the event to support them. What an wonderful partnership between the community and our schools highlighting the important skills of reading!
