JAE students are celebrating their love of reading with WARM (We Are Reading More), and as part of the monthlong festivities they welcomed children’s book author Mr. Jeff Nathan for a day of learning literacy through humor and empowering alliterative creations. Through grade-specific assemblies and workshops, Mr. Nathan worked with students to reinforce the joys of reading. In an interactive workshop with third graders, together they created a story using alliteration as he described the function of the creative literary tool. Coordinated by librarian Mrs. Monica DiGiovanni, the schoolwide program encourages a goal of reading 500,000 minutes through the month of January. The students are tasked with reading in school and at home for enjoyment and are following a calendar filled with engaging, literacy-based activities.
