Woodford READS - Coming Soon!!

A picture of a stack of three booksLove reading books with your kids?  Woodford READS is for you!

To support the important foundation of early literacy, we are excited to launch Woodford READS (Read, Explore and Discover Success).  Soon after returning from spring break, a common chapter book will be given to every student in grades PK-5.  The book is the student’s to keep.  Mr. Hawkins will kick off the program by reading the first chapter from the book with a group of students from one of our elementary schools.  This will be videotaped and placed on our website.  What we will then ask is for each family to take a few minutes each night and read a chapter from the book together.  For our preschool and early primary students, a parent, another adult or an older sibling can read the chapter to the child.  This helps expand the student’s vocabulary and build important literacy skills.  For our intermediate students, we would like for the child to read to an adult or even to a younger sibling.  While the book might be below the normal reading level of the child, they can practice reading with fluency and expression.   Be sure to click Read More for additional information below.
