Read-in Week at Brentwood

Hello Brentwood Families!

Brentwood staff and students are delighted to participate in Read-In Week from October 1-4, 2018. Our theme this year is Bringing Stories to Life. We would like to invite Brentwood parents, grandparents, aunts, uncles, family friends, older siblings, etc. to share a favourite picture book or novel excerpt with our students.

Why take time to celebrate reading? There are five great reasons (other than getting to spend time with our wonderful students) to share a book. Did you know that reading to children:

  1. Fosters a lifelong interest in reading
  2. Extends a child’s attention span
  3. Aids language and vocabulary development
  4. Strengthens imagination
  5. Builds comprehension and understanding

Read-In Week allows us as adults to demonstrate to our children the importance, joy and relevance of reading in our daily lives.

If you are interested in reading to a class during Read-In Week please contact Shila King, Brentwood School Library Technician at shila.king@eips.ca. Include your name, date/time available, reading selection, and ideal grade/class. If you would prefer, we would be happy to provide a book for you to read to our students.

Thank you for supporting our Brentwood students!
