Hampton Bays Reads Together

To engage students in reading, the Hampton Bays Elementary School has kicked off a new monthlong reading experience, called Hampton Bays Reads Together.

Through the program, each day, all students will read aloud with their teachers a chapter from the same book: “8 Class Pets + 1 Squirrel divided by 1 Dog = Chaos” by Vivian Vande Velde. Discussions about each day’s chapter will continue throughout the day and extend into special areas, including music and art. Principal Mark Meyer will also present to students a daily question regarding the text they are reading.

The goal of the new program is to enrich students by helping them to listen longer, build vocabulary, understand concepts and feel positive about books and learning. #engageHB
