Do you have a favourite book your parents or grandparents read to you when you were young? Is there a book you enjoy reading to your children or grandkids? Maybe a teacher once shared a great book with your class that captured your imagination and set you on a lifelong love of reading?
On February 5, Elk Island Public Schools (EIPS) wants to hear from you—about the story you’ll always remember. Write a post and include a photo. Or, even better, record a short video reading a favourite quote or passage from the book. Then, tweet it and tag the EIPS Twitter account @eips or reply to the Read Aloud Day post on the Division’s Facebook page. And, be sure to use the hashtag: #eipsreadsaloud.
NOTE: The Read Aloud contest is open to community members, students, and teachers and staff throughout the Division—everyone who posts is automatically entered in a draw to win one of nine EIPS prize packages. Winners will be announced on Feb. 7, 2020.
