A second station for elementary parents’ orientations was an opportunity for parents to get some real world experience helping their child improve their literacy skills. Mr. Ron Mirr, consultant for the $1.6 million literacy grant Coosa County schools received, led parents in exercises to make reading with their child fun by reading with expression. There was much laughter among the participants as parents modeled animating their readings in small groups.
After this practice parents escorted their child to the book fair where they received 10 free books. High school students also attended the free book fair during their orientations. Students will continue to receive 10 free books every year over the course of the 5-year grant which aims to improve literacy in K-12 students by building a culture of enjoying reading at home, as well as at school, which studies indicate helps students to succeed in school, as well as life.
