On Feb. 2, Stratford School students in Garden City participated in World Read Aloud Day. The celebrations kicked off with a schoolwide read-aloud of What the Road Said with Assistant Principal Lauren Kaufman. Students were invited to think about the question, “what does it mean to be a leader?” and were asked to draw a picture or write about a time they were brave.
World Read Aloud Day brought along some exciting news for Stratford, as it was announced that a Little Library would be installed in the back of the school in the upcoming weeks, thanks to the Parents Teacher Association. This will be a space where students can give or take a book to celebrate reading.
In addition, classes participated in a variety of exciting read-aloud activities including author visits, Flipgrid story building activities and book buzzes, where students shared their favorite part of a book with a friend. World Read Aloud Day marked a wonderful, shared learning experience for the entire Stratford School community.
