In celebration of Pick A Reading Partner month, students at Parkway Elementary School took book selfies with their favorite titles! PARP is a program that asks a partner to read with a child for at least 20 minutes daily, stressing the fact that reading can be fun as well as informative. The daily activity of reading together strengthens reading and communication skills in the child and strengthens their relationship.
Students at East Meadow High School recorded videos of themselves reading children’s books in different languages for younger students at Parkway Elementary School during Pick a Reading Partner month. PARP is a program that asks a partner to read with a child for at least 20 minutes daily, stressing the fact that reading can be fun as well as informative.
Multiple classes at Parkway participated in the virtual read along. The high school readers appeared on the screen with a book and recited the books in either Italian or Spanish. Some of the books were presented using American Sign Language, with someone reading the story as they signed. In addition, the ASL high school students taught the younger students how to sign their names as part of the activity.
