Read Across America celebrated in the ACSD ...

Hundreds of students from Allamakee Community School District (ACSD) celebrated the National Read Across America event Friday, March 1. District Teacher Librarian Lisa Snitker organized the annual paired reading event in the Waukon High School/Middle School Library. Students from East and West Elementary Schools partner-read with Waukon Middle School students during the event, reading print books and eBooks on the Middle School student laptops, the large touch table and interactive big screen (such as what is pictured in the surrounding photos). Promoting reading through peer modeling encourages teaching and learning. Through the event students gain reading skills, socially interact and build new relationships. Teachers and staff from Waukon Middle School and East and West Elementary Schools remarked that the Read Across America event was an amazing opportunity for older and younger students to connect in a positive and rewarding experience.
