At Washington Early Learning Center, which serves grades K-2, each class researched and read books by the author that they Skyped with, as well as created a list of questions to ask them. This was a wonderful opportunity for the district’s youngest students to engage with an author/illustrator and learn about the writing process.

Carl Sandburg Middle School students chose from a variety of authors who will be offered Skype sessions in the morning and afternoon. In addition, the school ran an end-of-day homeroom schedule to include teacher book talks involving teachers of all subjects as well as time for silent reading and student book talks.

For students at Mechanics Grove Intermediate Center (grades 3-5), World Read Aloud Day  kicked-off The Love of Reading Month, a month-long celebration of reading. “We are looking forward to a lot of fun reading activities in February, “ said Reading Specialist Mary Beth Anderson. The  week of February 20 are teacher read alouds, a visit from author/illustrator Tom Watson (Stick Dog and Stick Cat book series), and a “Warm Up With a Good Book” reading night.
