Templeton Middle School will host the Scholastic Book Fair and Accelerated Reader Family Night Jan. 27 from 5 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. All Templeton students and families are invited.
The evening’s goal is for families to have fun and spend quality time together in an activity that promotes good reading habits. Parents, grandparents and siblings gather informally to select books, talk about what they’ve read and what they recommend, read together and prove their understanding with computerized quizzes.
A recent study of literature-based reading shows that students in general read only 7.1 minutes a day. The study also shows that reading practice helps to increase reading performance.
Participants are free to drop in for a few minutes or stay as long as they’d like. The Scholastic Book Fair will be open for browsing and purchases throughout the evening.
