Mr. Holt's Notes

There is not much that we do as educators and parents of elementary students that has higher importance than getting kids excited about reading. It is an investment that pays huge dividends, with students who read 15 minutes per day performing better academically than 90% of their peers. On the other hand, those who read 5 minutes per day perform better than 50% of their peers and students who read just 1 minute per day perform better than only 10% of their peers. Thanks for partnering to get our community reading!


Mr. Holt's Book Pick of the Week:

Biblioburro: A True Story from Colombia ( Jeanette Winter)

What is the library came to your neighborhood on the back of a donkey? This is the true story of a Colombian school-teacher's traveling library that brought books to children in remote villages.
