Mrs. Smith, our librarian, will be reading two books out loud at the end of announcements. Thankfully, Penguin Random House, a large publishing company, has allowed the books they publish to be read out loud to allow educators to continue to spread the love of reading to their students during this time.
Because of this, announcements are longer than normal!
Feel free to pause and come back to the read alouds, or enjoy right after you watch announcements! Mrs. Smith will be reading one picture book first for all her friends to enjoy, and then she will be reading a chapter or two a day of the Newbery award winning novel, The Tale of Despereaux by Kate DiCamillo. This is one of Mrs. Smith's favorite tales of finding heroism in unlikely places. This read aloud is appropriate for 3rd-5th graders!
