About the High Flyin' Reader Program

All students in the LIFE program have the opportunity to participate in the reading program by completing a daily reading log that's located in the Canvas course "LIFE Family Resources."  Students earn their wings by reading 3 or more times a week.  

All students that meet the criterion (e.g., "earn their wings") are designated to be "High Flyin' Readers."  One is selected, at random, to be the "Featured High Flyin' Reader."

Featured High Flyin' Reader - February Abigail B.

Feb 2022 High Flyin' Reader

Congratulations Abigail B, our featured High Flyin’ Reader for the month of February! 

She’s earned her wings for 3 months in a row!  She’s soaring high! 

Reading used to frustrate Abigail.  She’s non-verbal and that impacted her ability to enjoy books.  According to her mother, that’s all changed.  Listening and reading books, especially her favorite Little Einsteins stories, has helped Abigail gain verbal language skills!  She uses stories to script and communicate.  

During her 3rd grade class, Ms. Silva reports that you can generally count on a few things:  Abigail is usually outside, full of energy, and ready to share whatever Reggie, her service dog, is doing.  Abigail is quick to participate in class, whether it’s identifying colors or drawing on their teacher’s nose!  Yes!  They draw on their teachers’ faces in class!  Things are always lively in Ms. Silva’s classroom.

Ms. Silva, an elementary teacher in the LIFE department, has a background as a media specialist and she’s brought her expertise to her classroom.  Ms. Silva has collected numerous books and posted them all on the classroom’s own virtual library.   Abigail loves choosing her own story during reading time.  It’s only rivaled by her favorite class warm-up song: Professor Alpha’s Alphabet Rap!

This active student doesn’t just stay busy in the classroom either!  During Community Day, she volunteered at a local food bank.  Additionally, she loves swinging, riding in the car, driving bulldozers, and riding horses.  

Keep reading, High Flyer!
