CLARK, NJ - Everything seems to have gone virtual these days including story time. Students in kindergarten through third grade at Valley Road School recently enjoyed stories from the comfort of their homes with a favorite blanket and stuffed animal, all while wearing their pajamas according to school officials.
Four teachers served as guest readers for the event, each with a book to share. Kimberly Nacht read The Little Old Lady Who Wasn’t Afraid of Anything. Emma Gilardi read Stellaluna. Jennifer White-Clere read The Cat in the Hat and Kelly Worton read Fletcher and the Falling Leaves.
“This virtual event brought our K-3 community together for an enjoyable night of reading. I want to thank our VRS teachers who shared some of their favorite stories with our students,” said Principal Joe Beltramba.
Officials said this event is part of a larger Reading Incentive Program at the school in which students select books from a virtual library and complete a reading log. Each room in the library has a different series of books for different grade levels.
