|In 1998, while teaching at St. John's Preschool and
Kindergarten in Ocean Springs, Mississippi, Virginia Wright implemented a
reading program in her class she penned,
This would help promote children's
reading literacy in her classroom and to get young children interested
in reading every day. She found that young children had much
more interest in story time when it was made part of a daily schedule.
Instead of her students just bringing in a book on Show & Tell Day,
every day children took turns bringing in a book. It was an easy
plan to establish... because Virginia simply asked the child who had the
turn to bring the snack for the day-- to also bring in a book.
Virginia found that the interest was two-fold in story time, and
while teaching for three years at St. John's, she kept the
"Book-A-Day program" in
place in her classroom. Book-A-Day is a
reading literacy awareness effort that she hopes to make every preschool
and kindergarten class aware of. |
