Prep to year 6 students are participating in PAWS for Reading. Scholasitc reading campaign that runs until June 30, 2014. Each P-6 class is participating in the challenge. Teachers register their class, track reading in the classroom and motivate students. Kids select a team CATS or DOGS and record their reading times and progress. Parents can be involved too, helping children to record their results, remind them to reading at least 10 mintues every night and keep them interested in the program by sharing reading time with them.
