On Tuesday, March 2, Kim Ash brought reading excitement to Shields Elementary School students on National Read Across America Day.
Although covid 19 necessitated this year’s reading to take place over Zoom, teacher Deanna Shaw’s 4th graders gave Kim a “thumbs up” for her enthusiastic delivery and choice of books, and were able to ask questions and provide their own interpretations of the stories.
Launched in 1998 by the National Education Association, Read Across America Day is a day to celebrate the joys of reading, bring awareness to the importance of reading in education, and help motivate kids to read more.
