Read Around the World Program
Purpose: Students will be encouraged to read about different cultures from around the world, increasing their love for reading as well as increasing their knowledge of different cultures from around the world
How: Students can check out and read picture books from cultures around the world. If students are interested in participating, they will be given a sheet to keep track of their books. We will put their picture up on the chalkboard with their writing. When students finish a continent (read 20 books from each continent) they will get a stamp on their passport and we will put their picture up on our world chalkboard wall in front of the main office. We will ask students to write or share a reflection on their learning or favorite book from that continent. When they complete the project from all seven continents they will get their name on a plaque in the front office and a special shout out in the newsletter.
