On Tuesday, November 18, 2014, Gravely Elementary participated in National Young Readers' Day. It is a day aimed at motivating students to read by providing adult role models. They had Guest Readers from within the community, staff, parents, and sailors from the USS Gravely. It was a Fairy Tale theme enjoyed by all!
Families and students at Antietam Elementary enjoyed coming to the school to read together and learn a strategy that can be used at home to benefit comprehension. Teachers modeled retelling or paraphrasing after reading using the STP or STAR strategy. Families cozied up to read a book from their student's book box on blankets throughout the school and practice the strategy. It was a night of fun and learning!
