Read anywhere, any time!
My school is celebrating its own Literacy Month this month, and everyone's been challenged to just stop what they're doing and read for at least ten minutes every day. Of course, for me, that isn't hard... But it's been GREAT seeing everyone else reading too!
The students get started with their reading challenge during assembly...
The staff get reading too!
And of course the students read when they should be doing maths...
(And I hate having to tell them to put their novels away,
because it makes me so happy to see them reading!)
You know that Black Eyed Peas song, I GOTTA FEELING? Well, have you heard the Ocoee Middle School version GOTTA KEEP READING? I know, I know, you're gonna be thinking corny as soon as you hear it, but I couldn't stop smiling the whole way through :-) Below is a little clip of our girls singing it...
If you work at a school, have you done something like this before?
A read-a-thon, perhaps?
All credit goes to the Black Eyed Peas for the original song I GOTTA FEELING and to Ocoee Middle School (I think, I mean their name is on the video on YouTube!) for the words of GOTTA KEEP READING. If you'd like to see Ocoee Middle School performing their song, click here. It's awesome!
