Gallaher PTA:Recipients of the National PTA Kindle Reading Experience

Congratulations Gallaher PTA on being chosen as one of the National PTA Kindle Giveaway recipients.
The PTA Family Reading Experience, Powered by Kindle is a program that helps children become better readers and helps foster the love of reading through a set of free literacy activities that are fun for the whole family.

All Title 1 PTA schools, or a PTA schools with greater than 40% of students eligible for free/reduced price lunch, were eligible to apply to receive 20 Kindle E-readers to enhance their PTA Family Reading Experience and support literacy activities at your school.

Gallaher PTA held their March Madness Reading competition last month in which students were challenged to to increase their reading activities. The program developed by 4th grade student Ethan Williams was such a success that PTA President Mike Williams would like to see the program replicated in other schools in the district.

In an effort to support this program and other initiatives, National PTA offers a reading toolkit with activities to reinforce the core skills of literacy—phonological awareness, phonics, fluency, comprehension and vocabulary—and focus on improving reading skills between kindergarten and fifth grade.
