LaTonia Gray, Reading Specialist
Welcome to our Reading Room


Dear Amazing Parents and Students,
I hope you are all staying safe, healthy and happy.  Students, during our Read Across Lake Ridge Elementary school-wide reading event, I spoke with  you about how reading just twenty minutes a day will add up to more than a million words over the course of a year. Keep striving to read a million words! You can do it! I know you can. I hope you are reading and writing daily. You may contact me at anytime. Here is a list of literacy resources that you can use during the extended break.
