Grinnell College Students Read to Students

The students came to read Davis 3rd graders earlier in the school year.

Grinnell College students from Carmen Valentine’s tutorial, Children’s Literature, read stories and led related activities for third grade students at Davis Elementary. Several Grinnell College students worked together to write a children’s book as part of their class work and four different groups came to Davis Elementary to read their books to the students.  Songs related to each book’s theme followed the reading of the book.  Students listened intently as they heard about Rock ‘ Roll Maria, princesses, stars, and letters of the alphabet.
