When? Friday, March 1 from 8:15 - 9:20 in classrooms (9:20 - 9:30 reception)

Who? Community members, educators, coaches, parents - anyone with a Yarmouth connection!

What do you bring? A favorite picture book, poem, short story, or chapter book that has impacted you in a positive way!

Who are you presenting to? You will be assigned to one classroom of students in 5th - 8th grade (about 22 students). Each homeroom will have 3 guest readers from various aspects of our community.

What do you say? Each reader will have 10 - 15 minutes to:

Introduce yourself

Explain what reading brings to your life

Describe which novel/poem/short story/picture book you brought with you and why             (What’s the meaning or significance behind it? Was/Is this one of your favorite books? Does it inspire you? Did someone read it to you when you were younger?)

Read your book/poem/story, or share a page/excerpt aloud to the students!
