Reading Recovery Read Aloud
RRCNA is excited to partner with Reading Recovery in Europe
The Reading Recovery Read Aloud is an international event designed to increase awareness of children who struggle to read and to ensure they get the attention they need. The event will raise the self-esteem of these children by enabling them to celebrate their achievements in literacy and to become role models for others who are facing a similar struggle.
How can my school get involved?
We are asking you to arrange for the Reading Recovery children in your school to read to someone special to them. This might be someone in your school, a local or national celebrity or VIP. You might also consider arranging for the student to read to someone “virtually” through either skype or video taping his or her reading and sending a recording of the reading to the special person. Then share the experience, by sending your photos and stories to RRCNA, sharing the children’s achievements on social media, or inviting your local press to celebrate some good news in your area.
How to get started?
You can download the resources (right) with suggestions for how to organize the event, including a template letter and fact sheet to invite someone you know to support your children, and a postcard you could send to a celebrity with a video clip of the child reading to make it easy for them to respond to the child.
The 2017 Read Aloud is organized by the UCL Institute of Education’s International Literacy Centre in the United Kingdom and the Reading Recovery Council of North America
“Reading brings the world closer and creates opportunities, but is not an easy skill for every child. I am pleased to support the Read Aloud. We all have a responsibility to ensure that all children are able to read well.”
– Gillian Anderson
