Talk at home about…Red Clover & DCF Books!

Each year, K-8 students may participate in the Red Clover (K-4) or Dorothy Canfield Fisher (4-8) Kids’ Choice Reading in the new chairs!Programs. Both programs expose students to a wide variety of quality literature chosen by dedicated teams of teachers and librarians. Students are able to vote for their favorite titles by the end of the school year. In addition, students learn to try new things with a spirit of exploration!

K-4 students share the Red Clovers during library times. The books help me teach and reinforce key literacy skills. Sharing takes the form of readalouds, movement activities, even blogging! Click here to visit the Red Clover site to learn more about the program and see the books your children will be sharing this Fall.

4th-8th graders listen to and watch book talks for the DCF nominees. They may participate in discussion groups and keep us busy making sure multiple copies of the books get into their eager hands! Click here to visit the DCF site. Watch trailers for this year’s nominees! We encourage you to read along with your child. The most meaningful discussions happen with you!
