Fourth-graders from Ursula Camenzulli’s class at Sylvan Avenue Elementary School recently collaborated with first-grade students from Erin Miller’s class in celebration of World Read Aloud Day.

During the collaborative session, the fourth-graders read picture books to the younger students in an effort to get them excited about the many wonders of reading. In return, the first-graders read some of their pieces of writing aloud for all to hear. 

According to their website, every year on World Read Aloud Day people around the globe take time to read aloud together, share stories and advocate for literacy as a human right that belongs to all people.
