Mrs. Johnston - Reading Specialist

Welcome to Mrs. Johnston's Reading Room!!!
I am the Reading Specialist at Pickett Elementary! I work with children everyday to help them grow as readers and explore all that the gift of literacy can offer!

Reading Strategy of the Week: Character traits - think about words that describe how characters act during certain situations or what kind of people they are.

Reading Tip:  Find your vocabulary words in books you are reading!

To our parents: I recommend that you spend any free time you have reading with your child. Any materials you use are fine! Newspapers, age appropriate books, or websites, such as  One of MY very favorite books is, Don't Let the Pigeon Drive the Bus by Mo Willems. Reading a book like this one together for 20 minutes a day makes a tremendous difference in a child's life!
