Reading Festival

Found in: reading; reading activities, programs, & events; parental involvement

In the first, teachers volunteer to read a story to a group of students and their parents. They read to the students in their own classroom and after 15-20 minutes switch to another classroom. If you have a reading festival for two hours then students hear six to eight different people read.

In the second, people from the community read at different stations. I think we had eight stations. The people read to students and discussed the story for 15-minute intervals. Then students moved to another station. We also had parent volunteers at each station to introduce the reader and mark off a passport for the students who came to the station. At the end of the night any student who had gone to 7 different stations got a small goodie bag. Our PTA provided the bags. This was well attended by parents, and the community connection was super.
