Read Across Differences Month: Reading Without Walls

To celebrate Read Across America this year we are taking it a step further!

READING WITHOUT WALLS promotes diversity and opens readers’ eyes to new ideas and experiences. In this divided time in our nation’s history, READING WITHOUT WALLS is an inclusive way to spread appreciation and understanding for others — and to learn new and exciting things.

Hayhurst students will be challenged do to one of the following:

  1. Read a book (or have one read to you!) about a character who doesn’t look like you or live like you.
  2. Read a book (or have one read to you!) about a topic you don’t know much about.
  3. Read a book (or have one read to you!) in a format that you don’t normally read for fun. This might be a chapter book, a graphic novel, a book in verse, a picture book, or a hybrid book. Tumblebooks, the public library, and our library’s e-books are great resources!

Fill out this slip and have a parent/guardian sign it. Then return it during the weekly curbside checkout or email the completed form to Ms. Chambers at by Friday, March 19th. Ms. Chambers will have a reading-themed prize to give out after Spring Break to all students that completed the challenge.
