Reading Role-Models

Teachers at Brookhaven Elementary School have teamed up with “Book Fairies” to provide parents with some great fiction and non-fiction adult books. “Book Fairies” is a not-for-profit organization that collects reading material for people and districts in need throughout the New York metropolitan area. Their goal is to foster literacy and academic success.

The goal of the Reading Role Model project was to provide parents with books to keep in the hopes that they will serve as a great tool to model the importance of reading in each household. These books were available for pick up during our spring parent teacher conferences as well as other after school events.

Teachers have received some great feedback from parents regarding this project. Parents were excited to browse the books available and there was a great book buzz around the titles and authors that Book Fairies provided.

Brookhaven looks forward to continuing this with the support of the Book Fairies for future events such as Kindergarten Orientation and Dial Screening.
