Spring into Reading at VMPS
We celebrated the first day of spring with an invitation for families to join us for an afternoon of reading and refreshments. Family members and their children were welcome to come and go anytime between 1:00 and 3:00. After picking up their children from their classrooms, they joined us in the gym where cozy reading nooks were set up. Featured were many wonderful new picture books purchased with our Indigo grant money, a variety of levelled readers, and IPads so parents could explore Tumble books and other reading apps.
While many families stayed for 30 minutes, others stayed the entire time alternating from reading to their children and listening to their own children read, while sipping sweet lemonade and munching on mini doughnuts. It was a social afternoon full of rich literature and reading. It was a great way to kick off spring!
