Franklin Elementary School Summer Reading Rocks!, 2017
An Enhanced Learning Mini-Grant Project
Tonya Fletcher, Teacher
This project took place at Franklin Elementary School in June and focused on minimizing the loss of reading performance over summer break by providing reading materials for all Kindergarten through third grade students at the school. Parents and guardians joined students on campus for a rock painting party which included reading with students and then decorating rocks with those books’ themes and characters. This family engagement opportunity provides one way for the Franklin Elementary community to get excited about reading!
