Recent Successes and Current Challenges
“Last year one of my 1st grade students picked a book that her teacher said was too hard for her. This year the little girl came in bubbling about how she was on chapter 6 of that book, she'd been reading it all summer! She was so proud of herself! That book was just the motivation she needed. At the last Page Ahead book give-away, she told me that she'd finally finished the book. Proof that if the child selects it they will read it, no matter how long it takes.” Central Elementary
