Debby Gale did a stellar job organizing 28 readers to read for the K-4 classes at Barre Town Elementary School! Their wonderful principal, James Taffel, welcomed us and took this photograph of the group before people headed out to their classrooms.
Because so much was going on in a short period of time, we're unable to describe the activities readers did in their various classrooms, but we can tell you that it was a very busy morning! Here are a few images from the classrooms:
