Come Read With Me at St. Charles

Olivia Burke and her mom read a comparison chart created by the JKFI class about what students liked and didnít like about the story “Chrysanthemum”.

May 10, 2013 - During Catholic Education Week at St. Charles Catholic Elementary School, families in the Mme Martin's JKFI, Mme Daoust's SKFI and Mrs. Malafarina's JK/SKR classes came together for a “Come Read with Me” day. At this engaging and hands on session, parents received tips about reading with their children and the importance of oral language. Mme Martin then modelled a read aloud and parents then selected a book from the teacherís bins of favorites or guided reading books that the students are using and practiced the strategies they learned.

Teachers posted examples of student work around the room that showed parents how picture books are used in all subject areas as a rich and purposeful resource. Parents did a gallery walk to see the artifacts that students created throughout the school year using these books.

Families left with their own read aloud book, an activity, tips sheet for reading at home and a bookmark with reading strategies for young readers.
