Every story brings a new chance to learn! Protagonists from every genre were getting a page-turning workout for Read Across America Day on March 2. State Superintendent Paolo DeMaria joined the celebration of stories as a guest reader for family story time at the Columbus Metropolitan Library. Superintendent DeMaria read Bark, George by Jules Feiffer to a group enthusiastic young learners.
Ohio’s libraries are fantastic education partners. Library CEO Patrick Losinski and Director of Strategic Initiatives Nikki Scarpitti welcomed Superintendent DeMaria to their world of wisdom and wonder, and highlighted the many mays the Columbus Library creates and strengthens learning for students. Story time is among the many ways families can work together on fundamental reading strategies. Reading aloud to children is a great way to engage young learners, promote language development and reinforce early literacy skills. Did you know reading three new picture books a week to children can increase their vocabulary by 40 percent? Sarah Wright, Youth Services Manager, shared how families can practice these literacy skills at home and build excitement for reading. Follow along below with highlights from Twitter and Instagram.
