Each year, World Read Aloud Day motivates children, teens, and adults worldwide to celebrate the power of words. World Read Aloud Day, sponsored by the organization LitWorld, is celebrated by millions of people in more than 100 countries. LitWorld's mission is to encourage communities of readers to take action to show the world that literacy is essential to all people. World Read Aloud Day is an opportunity for people around the world to advocate for literacy as a human right.
We are excited to celebrate World Read Aloud Day at ASD! This week, students will be engaged in read aloud activities during their library classes and other times during the school day. We have special guest readers from all around the school visiting classes. We also have buddy reading activities planned. Some Middle and High School students will visit the library to read aloud to small groups in our Elementary Library.
Take some time this week to celebrate reading aloud to each other at home with your family! We have hundreds of wonderful picture books, information books, comics and chapter books -- all of which would be make great read aloud material. Make funny voices, take turns reading, act out the story, retell the story. However you approach read aloud, you are never too old to enjoy the magic of a story together.
