Reading Day

October 6th was Reading Day at ABC Christian Academy! This is an amazing day devoted to getting students excited about reading! It all begins weeks before when students are deciding on their favorite character and how to make or find that costume. It myself was Pocahontas because I did not bring a costume and that is the only one that I could find. Others were so much more creative and came up with some great stuff. A picture is worth a thousand words so here are some pictures of the parade that we did first thing in the morning when all the kids got to school.

This was such a great day. In my classroom we moved all the desks aside and brought in our favorite blankets and pillows! We made one huge bed on the floor and lounged around a read all day. I had a lot of parents come in and read stories to the kids and I read a lot of my Teacher Read Aloud book Wayside School (the kids love it!). We also had the parade and a special Chapel just for Reading day where the kids got nominated for different awards for their costumes. It was a great start to the school year and a wonderful way to motivate the students to read, read, read!
