South Newton’s newest take-home reading program, ROARing Readers, has begun with a huge success! The simple goal of the program is to promote a love of reading by putting extra books into the hands of our youngest South Newton Tigers. Students in pre-kindergarten, kindergarten, and first grade get a new book bag each week loaded with age-appropriate books.
Many of these books are informational texts focusing on science, math, American, and multicultural themes. Some of the books are even bilingual written in both English and Spanish, and of course there are some great fiction and well-known children’s stories in the bags, too. Teachers are reporting that students are super excited about the program and have trouble waiting a whole week to check out their new book bags!
