North Smithfield Elementary School will be celebrating World Read Aloud Day on February 16, 2017! There is substantial research to support the practice of reading aloud to children, but quite simply, reading aloud is a commercial for reading…it offers children the opportunity to enjoy the magic of reading and motivates them to want to read more. When we read aloud to children, we create a shared experience that is treasured and creates a community of readers.
Our classrooms at NSES will be hosting and welcoming a variety of community members to come and share a favorite story. We truly want to emphasize the idea that we are creating a community of readers by asking our community to share the love of reading with us.
If you have questions about our day or would like more information, please feel free to contact Tracy Lafreniere at firstname.lastname@example.org. We are so looking forward to this fantastic day!
