Family Read Along

On the first Friday of each school year we host a First Grade Family Read Along.  All three first grade classrooms participate.  The Read Along is inspired by the book, The Relatives Came by Cynthia Rylant.  The Relatives of our first grade students are invited to the event.  Moms, dads, siblings, aunts, uncles, and friends attend.  They bring books, blankets and snacks.  During the last 30 minutes of the school day the relatives knock on the classroom door and to our surprise the relative arrive!  It's an exciting event and it's a great way to kick off a new school year of reading, sharing and connecting with our first grade school families.

Lots of relatives are reading on the stage.
