CL Baptist students celebrate 'I Love to Read' month
Preschool and kindergarten classes read Little House books during class, while first through sixth grade classes participated in an all school read-aloud, Prairie School, by Lois Lenski.  Daily prizes were awarded to the first student who found a golden snowflake that was hidden throughout the school.  For ten minutes each day, students were invited to “stop, drop, and read.”  Occasionally a mystery reader read a selection from a well- known book over the loudspeaker.  Each week, the names of children who returned their reading logs were put into a drawing for one of a dozen books.
