Ms. Seddon recently applied for and won a grant from the Connecticut Reading Association!
Ms. Seddon recently applied for and won a grant from the Connecticut Reading Association! Her special project - Read Every Day (RED) Project helps students celebrate literacy in a new and exciting way! The RED Project reminds children they are not just readers in the school setting, but that they are readers whenever and wherever they get a chance to read; be it at home, to a friend, or to a pet, the options of unlimited! Here's how the RED Project works...
- After committing to reading every day, all students in grades 2 and 3 will receive RED folders that are filled with high interest books that they can read over and over again and trade with classmates.
- Students in these grades can engage in book chats with their classmates and trade books at one of the classroom's Stop and Swap stations!
- As a reader who reads every day, students will remember to bring these folders to and from school and read any chance they get.
- The overarching goal is for all students to become readers for life! The grant has helped Mary Morrisson continue to foster a community where we teach students that they are not just learners, thinkers, and readers in school, but also outside school as well.
- At Mary Morrisson, we have made a commitment to Read Every Day and encourage and support learning for life!
Ms. Seddon kicked off the project with a special assembly where students from Grades 2-3 received their red folders filled with high interest books. Congratulations Ms. Seddon and thank you for all your hard work!
