Minnieland Academies will participate in Read for the Record on October 27, 2016
Minnieland Academy will join millions of readers across the country on October 27 for the world's largest shared reading experience, Jumpstart's Read for the Record. The program unites people across the country in reading the children’s book The Bear Ate Your Sandwich, by Julia Sarcone-Roach.
Jumpstart's Read for the Record campaign mobilizes millions of people to celebrate literacy by participating in the shared reading experience. The nation is called to read together in big cities, small towns, and everywhere in between, to put children first by shining a spotlight on the importance of high-quality early education.
Each Minnieland school pledged to read this year's book to all the children in their respective programs. The count of Minnieland children reading the book, or having the book read to them was added to the total national count. The book is a classic story that will be an important part of the future repertoire in each school for children to read over and over again. It is these story experiences that build interest in reading in young children, preparing them for their future school careers.
