NOV. 27, 2017: On Wednesday, November 15th, 2017, FNN reporters from Tech Prep and Collegiate joined pre-k-1st-grade students from Blow Pierce to celebrate the arrival of the FNN Online Book Club. Students celebrated the fun of reading with us by having what we like to call a “Book Party”. Scholars participated in fun and exciting activities that had to do with their favorite books and stories. They even got to hear stories read by our older FNN reporters, teachers and parents and got a chance to pick out a brand new book to keep.
The experience for me was really fun and exciting. All of the students loved the books that we read together and they all had so much fun with me and the others. The teachers and parents were so nice and supportive during the entire event. The scholars loved their books. They all had a great time, and I did too. Reading is important to all of our scholars, so it’s a great thing that we can get them excited for reading right now.
