CDS Junior School staff, students and their families answered the challenge to share stories together on February 3rd by participating in WORLD READ ALOUD DAY! This global literacy event is celebrated in over 173 countries now and the numbers continue to grow.
Making the time to read aloud to each other felt even more important than ever this year with us all finding ourselves craving more connections and shared experiences. Our Junior School community came together, from Junior Kindergarten to Grade 6, to read aloud to each other and share their favourite books in their classes throughout the day in Google Meets online.
Students and family members took special time out of their days to read aloud to one another at home as well. A few sweet pets and well-loved stuffed toys got to join in on the fun too as we could see from the photos that were shared from the day! Thanks to all our super readers for making our 2nd annual ‘World Read Aloud Day’ come alive virtually and in your homes!
