Community Reading Day
Need: books, reading volunteers
Connect students with community members through storytelling.
Volunteers from the community (firefighters, the mayor, the town librarian, team mascots, others) come to school dressed for work and read to different classrooms
All students take a field trip through town businesses and town offices. At each stop, a community member reads a story
Why it works
Shows children that adults read, shows that all careers require reading skills, helps connect community members to the school
