Reading Warm-Up Workshops

Get your reading game on!

The Family Reading Readathon Workshops hosted by the Library Foundation help get you prepared.  Dates are January 22 and 29 and February 5, 12, 19 and 26.  For more information and registration can be found at The Library Foundation’s website.

Here are lesson outlines that Librarians and Teachers may want to use for their students and reading programs:

Description: In this workshop series, students engaged in a variety of reading “stretches” and “exercises” designed to build endurance, confidence, and creativity with reading during this year’s Readathon. Students practiced finding best-fit books for themselves, responding to this year’s Readathon challenges (Book Spine Poetry, Book Cover Redesign, Fantasy Cartographer & Character Dress Up), and engaging in fun reading exercises.

The purpose of these workshops was for students to master strategies in order to self-guide themselves during this year’s Readathon. In addition to these activities and exercises, students learned about the purpose of the Readathon and how their participation helps others in our community.
