This morning (Monday), the Burton, Navasota and Anderson-Shiro school districts will join tens of thousands of Texas students as they participate in the Texas Reads One Book program. On that day, students will simultaneously watch a videotaped reading of the first chapter of Charlotte’s Web by Dallas Cowboys Head Coach Jason Garrett. Across the state, more than 50,000 families in more than 100 elementary schools will all read Charlotte’s Web at the same time.
For the second consecutive year, Garrett will kick off this statewide family literacy initiative. His videotaped reading of the first chapter of Charlotte’s Web will be streamed to participating schools statewide at 9 a.m.
Through the program, every elementary family in participating schools will receive a copy of the book, and Spanish-language copies of Charlotte’s Web are available for Spanish-speaking families.
Texas Reads One Book is a project of the Texas Association of School Administrators.
