Read for the Record Day - October 7, 2010

      There is a national day of reading coming up on October 7th that you may have heard of or saw mentioned on the Weekender. Although no schools are officially participating in the division, you are certainly welcome to choose to celebrate "Read for the Record" day with your students. Here is the link for the site:

Read for the Record
     Reading aloud is such a natural occurrence in your classrooms, so it's nothing out of the ordinary for us. :) For the younger grades, the official book that is being read nationally is The Snowy Day by Ezra Jack Keats. Of course, you can really choose what you would like to read and simply say that it's a "reading holiday." :) 
     On Facebook, the "Read for the Record" site has photos of places Peter has "visited," like a Flat Stanley. This photo is the one I posted on the Facebook site. How many people have a palace next door to their school? :)
     A neat technology integrated feature is that you can read The Snowy Day online through this link found on the website. You can "turn" the pages by clicking, and enlarge the page as well. It would be great for the screen with the overhead projector/laptop setup in your room. Enjoy and have fun!
