The students at Trevose Day School are so excited to celebrate World Read Aloud Day on Thursday, February 1! Every day the teachers at TDS read to their students a variety of genres. The students have picked some favorites for this special day! The children in Ms. Kennedy’s pre-k room have chosen some stories about Groundhog Day. The 3rd-5th graders always look forward to continuing to read Wonder, and on Thursday, will each take a turn reading some of the chapters, too.
Our students, teachers and administrators are excited to participate in this event to advocate for literacy as a human right belonging to all. Reading aloud to children every day puts them almost a year ahead of children who are not read to every day regardless of backgrounds, according to numerous studies. And spending just 15 minutes a day can make all the difference in a child’s education. Stay tuned for clips and pictures of students on World Read Aloud Day later on in the week!
