OTISVILLE'S GREAT READ ALOUD: RAISING LIFELONG LEARNERS


Middle and high school students, and special guests, have been reading to K-5 students at Otisville Elementary as they observe the 9th Annual Great Otisville Read Aloud.

A celebration of reading, learning and books, the readings take place during library classes, under the guidance of school librarian Candice Sheerer. Guests read in person, or via Google Hangouts.

When guests share their passion for reading and books, they also share something about themselves and their story. Stories are made of relatable experiences that bring people together.

“Reading is the common ground between our guest-readers and our students,” Mrs. Sheerer said. “When adults and older peers share their enthusiasm for reading and books with our students, the message is, ‘reading is a meaningful experience,’ ‘reading is rewarding.’ Good reading habits are essential to lifelong learning, and that’s the focus of our Great Read Aloud.”

After each reading session, students are encouraged to find a book or two to take home.
