A few of Taryn Ryan’s kindergarteners who meet their Week 1 goal pose in front of the “Soar Into Reading” hallway display at Pence Elementary School. For three weeks, Pence students will be keeping a log of their at-home reading during a “Soar Into Reading” incentive program. A kick-off assembly highlighted the theme with a kite riddle, kite reader’s theater performances and reciting a Reader’s Oath. For the classes that reach their weekly goal, there are special incentive prizes. The final reward is a kite, and the top prize will be flying kites during a windy school day. Teachers and parents have been encouraging students to develop a daily reading habit, which improves skills as well as fostering enjoyment of reading.
