World Read Aloud Day February 24
Download free classroom materials and register your class to be part of this worldwide observance of the importance of reading aloud and sharing stories. On Wednesday, February 24th, be part of the Hollin Meadows World Read Aloud Day Story Quilt by providing your students with a 4"x4" square of white paper to respond to a classroom read aloud or a personal favorite book. Send all colorful, completed quilt squares to the library to display how we are all "pieced together" into a great community of readers.
