Posted: Tue, 02/13/2018 - 12:56pm
During Feburary's PTO meeting Karen Liebentritt (ARE Reading Interventionist) and Geneanne Payne (ARE Instructional Coach) gave a presentation titled, "The Importance of Read Aloud for ALL Kids." Attached is a flyer that covers the main points of the presentation, along with the full powerpoint. Included are statistics from Scholastic data that present the desire for children to be read aloud to, while also shining light on the lack of read aloud at various age groups. For example, only 52% of children ages 0-2 are read aloud to 5 days a week!
