Kids Can't Stop Reading!

Please help our young readers avoid summer slide.

Needed: Two teachers from our building to facilitate our summer reading program - Jumpstart or Keep On Reading

Imagine the fun you could have teaching Reading Workshop this summer. Picture the excitement you'll feel when you're engaging kids in Read Alouds with accountable talk. Envision the laughter you'll hear when kids have the opportunity to share their learning through partnership conversations and end-of-the unit projects.
