I wanted to give you a heads-up about a coming reading program available for all fourth-graders, called Book Celebration. I’ll be meeting with all classes after the Thanksgiving holiday to let them know about it. It’s a fun activity that encourages reading a variety of genres and discusses books in a social way – through the use of games, etc. The students won’t miss any class time; I’ll meet with them during some days at lunch.
There is information on my webpage:http://blogs.henrico.k12.va.us/tuckahoeeslibrary. The new list of books is also there. So many of your children participated in Reading Karate last year that I hope we will have a good group. The activity will be at Tuckahoe: no traveling. The exact format will depend on the number of participants. In the past, we have had a number of parents involved in the games, etc., and the reaction has been very favorable. The teachers are fully behind the celebration, and students seem to go home happy after the event!
Please let me know if you have any questions. firstname.lastname@example.org.
