This year for February's I Love to Read month, Anola school has decided to follow a One school, One Book program . One School, One Book is an interesting program in that children at all grade levels will all be listening to the same book in their homerooms, library and some assembly periods featuring special guests. Strange or daring as that may seem, it actually makes sound educational sense. Reading professionals recommend reading material out loud that is beyond a child's own reading level. And we also believe that you can and should continue reading chapter books to older children, even when they are able to read by themselves.
We have selected a title that can be followed and understood and enjoyed by younger students, but that will still captivate and stimulate older children. The book we have selected for our students is Judy Blume's "Tales of a Fourth Grade Nothing". During the month of February, take the time to engage your child in conversations about this funny tale featuring Peter Hatchett and his annoying little brother Fudge.
Our I Love to Read kick off will take place on the afternoon of February 2 in the gym.
