The Magic of Reading

Today, the students of IREC discovered a little magic. Our 4Wa students met with 1VM students for Reading Buddies in the library, but we had a large group today to accomodate the PLT schedule. In short, there were nearly 40 kids in the library at once.

A little bit of magic happened…. there was a happy hush in the room as all students were on task and sharing their books! All of the students were lost in the reading, and completely focused on their partners and their job. The only things you could hear were the encouraging words of the older students, such as “Just point to a word that’s hard and I will help you with it“, “What do you think that could mean?“, and “Remember to break that word into parts to figure it out“.

What an amazing example of synergy and leadership. Magical Reading, everyone!
