Books and Breakfast
Each month, we have a Books and Breakfast event where we have a guest reader and the students perform readers’ theater. Families enjoy the performances as they eat a potluck breakfast.
Former guest readers have included a karate instructor, a firefighter, a war veteran, and a sign language interpreter.
The goal of Books and Breakfast is for the kids to see that reading is something grown ups do – especially heroes they look up to.
Also, this is an opportunity for them to perform with their reading skills – giving a real sense of purpose for practicing and improving their reading.
