Story Corner

||  How dwe keep our children engaged during these unprecedented times is a question parents and educators have asked themselves over these last few months. At Berkeley Rose, our teachers have provided recordings of themselves reading books to their students.

Reading aloud supports the development of the child’s imagination, the acquisition of vocabulary and spelling/pronunciation, as well as being an enjoyable way to close the day with your child. As Joe Paradise, a fourth grade teacher, wrote in the Huffington Post, “In the 2,520 days that I have been teaching, I have yet to find one student who does not look forward to [being read to]! THEY ARE NOT TOO OLD TO BE READ TO.” 

We would like to share some of these recordings with our extended community.

So…  every week Berkeley Rose will share a few chapters from a book that one of our teachers has recorded for our students. Tune in weekly for new chapters.
