March 8, 2013 - PRLog -- Savannah, GA--St. Andrew's School in Savannah is putting the focus on reading during the month of March. Teachers instill a love for reading through a combination of factors at the private school.

Some of the ways this commitment to reading happens includes specialized and dedicated language arts teachers, expanded reading instruction through thematic
studies of literature, guest readers, book buddies, oral and silent reading as a central part of the curriculum and emphasizing the resources in our library.

The day before spring break, St. Andrew's scheduled a school-wide time for reading. The youngest students paired up with the oldest students, reading to one another. Some students brought a favorite book from home, others found stories on their iPads and some checked out a book from the media center.

“We brought the entire community together to make reading fun for all ages,” said Kelley Waldron, Head of the Lower School. “This is one of the many ways we combine time-tested traditions with cutting-edge innovations."

Later in the month, students in the Lower School will experience literature as drama. The Savannah Children’s Theatre will be on campus to engage students in a production of Aesop’s Fables. These students in Pre-K3 through Grade 4 will end the month-long celebration by having a pajama party and book drive for Wesley Community Center.
