SESSION: One Story a Day - Fueling Elementary School Kids’ Love of Reading

Using the One Story a Day series and relevant research as an example, Leonard and Kara will discuss how to get kids excited about reading by building the habit bit by bit, day by day. This presentation will cover three main topics: a) reading for fun as a learning activity; b) building a lesson around reading material; and c) helping children overcome their reading-related fears or challenges. Includes a free handout of sample One Story a Day stories and activities.
