The Read Aloud Program at Beale Elementary welcomed April Pyles who read “Just Grandma and Me” by Mercer Mayer and “Curious George” by H.A. Rey to students of Miss Amy Elam’s Kindergarten Class. The first book was about a trip the beach, and Pyles took the class a collection of sea shells for them to look at later. The second book tied in with a new word the class was just learning: “curious.” Pyles had the students tell her what being curious meant to them. Each child had something they were going to research and write about, including unicorns. Pyles said reading aloud, whether to school children, or our own children/grandchildren, is promoted by Community Educational Outreach Service as part of its Continuing Education goals. Pyles is a member of CEOS.
