Learning, Leading, and Loving Literacy

Next week is our favorite week of the year…the week we get to celebrate reading!  Take a look at the fun things we have planned…..

Reading Week 2015

   April 13 – April 16  

“Be Your Own Hero – READ”


Help us celebrate Reading Week at NSES with the following activities!


Read Aloud Day

Classroom teachers will begin the celebration by reading their favorite books aloud to students. Students can also partner read their favorites to classmates.



“Wear Something You Can Read” Day

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


Invite a Guest Reader Day

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


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:

  • Mystery Reader! 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.


  • Morning Book Swap! Each morning, students can bring in books to swap for other books.  One book brought in = one book you can swap. Please complete a permission form to swap books.


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