Every Job Requires Readers


Found in: reading; reading activities, programs, and events

We have guest readers come to our school and read to classes from kindergarten through grade 5. Our purpose is for children to understand that all jobs require readers. We invite people like the fire chief and fire fighters, a vice president of a local bank, senators, and other local businessmen and businesswomen. In the afternoon we split into two groups (K-2 and 3-5) for rotating reading activities. The children complete three 45-minute activities brought by other grade level teachers. The three activities in kindergarten are: make a book cover to fit a short story they hear, write a summary of a book they listen to, and participate in a choral reading with props of a poem they learn. The activities are adapted for each grade level.
