READING IS MAGIC at HODGESVILLE ELEMENTARY

 Reading IS magic for students at Hodgesville Elementary School.   During the summer, the school library was open once a week for a story hour and students had the opportunity to check out books to read at home.  In addition, students were challenged to read in a variety of ways at home and complete a READO card.  After completing twenty of the reading challenges, students were invited to a Reading is Magic Show by Magician Mark Clayton.   At the magic show, Charlotte from Charlotte’s Web gave them a special message “READ.”  The magical bunny made an appearance as well.  Students were engaged and loved seeing the magic while being inspired to read.
