Story School Students are Skating into Good Books!

Reading at home is an important habit for children to have, and studies have shown that students who read independently do better on tests and have both a stronger vocabulary and core knowledge base. Reading is also habit forming; the more a person reads, the more they want to read.

In order to encourage the formation of this habit in an enjoyable way, Story School is planning a Skating Field Trip for students who reach their individual nightly reading goals during the next month. Children in grades K-2 are asked to read 20 minutes a night, while the 3rd-5th graders will have a goal of 30 minutes a night. The entire school will meet weekly as we cheer each other on, and move our paper doll skaters across the bulletin board to the goal.

Read On, Story Students!
