CALLING ALL MYSTERY READER ( Fridays from 11:20-11:40 )
I would like to invite any parents, older siblings, grandparents, relatives, or other special people to surprise your child by being a “Mystery Reader” this year in our classroom. Students LOVE having their family, friends, and relatives visit our classroom to share in our learning by reading a favorite story aloud to our class.
Readers are asked to bring a book to read or read a teacher-chosen book from our classroom library.
If you can find a date that works for you, please sign up to be a Mystery Reader on this sign up genius for the 2019-2020 school year once it is set up by our Room Moms!
There will be many open dates to choose from throughout the year.
