Learning, Leading, and Loving Literacy

It’s the most wonderful time of the year – for reading teachers, anyway!  It’s Reading Week, a time to celebrate our love for reading, words, authors, and books.  We have a full week of fun planned here at NSES.  Take a look:

Monday Teacher shares his or her favorite childhood book
Tuesday “Wear Something You Can Read” Day

Wear something with words or create your own shirt to read.

Wednesday Poetry Day

Share poems in your classroom.


Thursday Invite a Guest Reader Day

Remember this can include “guests” from inside our school (other teachers, the secretary, the principal!).

Friday Read -a- thon

Pick one full hour during the school day to do nothing but read.  Read books, magazines, articles, writing from friends.  Bring a blanket, get cozy and read!

Ongoing activities:

  • Each morning there will be a mystery reader who will read over the intercom and the classrooms will buzz up to the office with their guess.


  • Door Decorating Fun!  During Reading Week, classrooms will have the opportunity to participate in decorating your door as your classroom’s favorite book cover.  Each classroom that participates will be entered into a drawing to win a special party hosted by the Reading Teachers.

We will be posting some pictures of our Door Decorating throughout the week.  Be sure to check in and see how great they look!
