I hope you and your family are safe during the COVID-19 pandemic.
At Prince Garrett we strive to keep children reading, engaged, and thinking about the possibilities during these trying times.
We know the importance of reading and are providing Prince Garrett read-aloud sessions to 2nd – 4th graders. These sessions will be delivered through Zoom using TPR (Total Physical Response: use of body language to help convey meaning). This technique help students retain the main ideas of the reading.
In each session, the author will use puppets, ask encouraging questions, and prompt students to look for clues. I’m truly excited about delivering Prince Garrett readings to your students. If you have questions or would like to schedule sessions with your students, send an email to Jannie.firstname.lastname@example.org.
