“Reading should not be presented to children as a chore or duty. It should be offered to them as a precious gift.”

            Kate DiCamillo

We hope that many families will join us for Lawrence Reads, a favorite family literacy event that we brought back last year and expanded to a new K-8 format.

Everyone at a particular grade level will read the same book and will come together for an evening of discussion. This is a chance for parents to share your love of great books with your children and other Lawrence families. You will also leave the evening with an insight into what your child is thinking about books.

This year’s theme is Historical Fiction.  The books are:

K-1:  That Book Woman by Heather Henson

2-3:  Hachiko Waits by Leslea Newman

4-5:  Lily’s Crossing by Barbara O’Connor

6-8:  Fire From the Rock by Sharon Draper

Pizza will be sold in the lobby from 6:00 until 6:25.   All participants, K thru 8, will gather together in the auditorium at 6:30 for the official kick off.  Families will then break into small grade level groups, throughout the school, where Lawrence staff members will facilitate discussions about the chosen book.

Lawrence Reads is part of an effort to promote a home-school partnership in literacy with a particular focus on developing a love of reading.  Thank you to our team of literacy specialists:  Jill Demsey, Terry Jewell, Dianne Muendel and Pam Tully for their efforts organizing this event.
