    Royal Readers

    We did Royal Readers one year which involved a crown and a cape for those that came to read. It was a cute idea, but most parents were uncomfortable being "dressed" up in front of the kids.

    I also ask school personnel to come in and read: librarian, principal, assistant principal, lead teacher, secretary, nurse...anyone who can model good literacy for the kids. It also helps them know the staff. You'd be surprised how many weren't sure which lady was the principal.

    We've also had special days where the board of education was invited to be mystery readers. I think we usually did that around Black History Month. The kids didn't really get who these "teachers" were but it meant alot to them to get invited into the classroom.
