Happy Nevada Reading Week!
There’s truly nothing better than reading a book with your loved ones. Some of our best memories have been made during “reading time” from our childhoods.
To celebrate this weekend that’s dedicated to the art of reading, Aimee from Aimee+Shawn read to a few classes at Twin Lakes Elementary.
Aimee read a few books to kindergartners and first graders, who all loved the stories that she read. We even had a dance party to celebrate this amazing week of reading!
It was a joy to read to the amazing students at Twin Lakes, who were all so excited to have a guest reader read to them! On top of that, it was “Crazy Hair Day,” so the room was filled with extra excitement.
For more than 40 years, Nevada Reading Week has been celebrated across the entire state. From book studies, book fairs and guest readers, this amazing week includes schools both rural and urban communities. It’s a week that is meant to celebrate and bring together communities and students with each other.
Each Nevada Reading Week consist of a new theme. Each of the themes reflect the “spirit of the times.” The crux of this week is to promote a life-long love for reading with each of the week’s activities being utilized to promote the importance and excitement behind reading.
This week is meant to be a vehicle of learning for students in Nevada. Along with this, 102.7 VGS recommends to take this week to reflect on your own reading habits. And trust us, we know it can be hard to get the kids to do . . . anything. Now, imagine forcing them to read. Yeah . . . ok. BUT, we recommend making reading a FUN part of you and your child’s day. Use reading as a way to connect with each other. Whether you’re reading TO your child or reading together, reading is good for everyone.
We hope you celebrated Nevada Reading Week in the best way possible! So what are you waiting for? Grab a good book, curl up on the couch and let’s read!
