Helping students have the best chance to be successful learners is the first priority for us in school. This happens in many ways – having great teachers and staff, providing the right tools (computers, books, etc.) and taking care of the social and emotional needs of our students.
February is when many schools and libraries celebrate I Love to Read Month. It is a month long celebration for all things reading.
Some may wonder what is the big deal about reading and will ask why it takes a month to celebrate. I would argue that a month is not nearly long enough. Reading should be celebrated, practiced, practiced and then practiced some more as it is the foundation for life in so many ways.
Let me share with you some reading facts first and then challenge you.
