Thanks to everyone who participated in the 2010 Read In Week.
Ready, Set, Read!
Ready… Find a good book, magazine or computer screen. Set… Choose a comfortable spot and block out any distractions. Read… Enjoy yourself. Have fun. Learn!
The purpose of READ IN 2010 is to create a greater awareness of the importance of reading. Historically, the event has successfully promoted the school as an important place for the development of lifelong literacy.
2010 Read In Materials
READ IN Week: October 4 – 8, 2010
The goal of READ IN Week is to involve as many individuals as possible in one or more READ IN events during the week of October 4 – 8, 2010. A READ IN event can take place anywhere — in the school’s READ IN centre, in the community or at home. A READ IN event is any occasion when participants make a deliberate choice to read or to be read to for pleasure.
