Second graders at Lloyd Harbor participated in the Pick A Reading Partner (PARP) program the week of May 13th. The goal of the PARP program is to celebrate adults and children spending time reading together. As we know, reading helps build vocabulary, improve comprehension and expand imaginations! Reading together makes these connections even stronger. The theme for this year’s program was Rainbow: Color Your World with Reading.
Throughout the course of ...the week, the second graders were visited by guest readers in their classrooms and had the opportunity to make book recommendations to their peers on LHTV. At home, the students read with an adult reading partner and worked on several activities to help deepen their understanding of the text.
Principal Massimo was thrilled to visit each second-grade class to kick off the week! She did a read-aloud using the book Be Kind, by Pat Zietlow Miller. This book was carefully selected because of its strong connection to Lloyd Harbor School’s core values. Administrators, Mr. Fenter, Mr. Simon, and Ms. Campbell, each read to one of the classes as part of the closing activities.
Thank you to Ms. Unger (reading teacher), Ms. Cuff (library), and our second-grade teachers for putting together such a worthwhile event!
