Exeter-Milligan celebrated Young Readers Week all week long November 11 – 15th. They ended the week with an event too big for their classrooms. The students were divided up into groups and rotated between six stations where they experienced reading through hands on activities. They sang books, made edible playdough, ate snacks and picked out their own book and learned how every book can be a play. Above: Second grade Teacher Mrs. Weber shows how each book can be a play.
