Community Read

To celebrate April as National Poetry Month, we will be reading Love that Dog by Sharon Creech. All Montvale students will receive a copy to keep. This year’s book is different from previous novels. It is much shorter and doesn’t contain chapters. Poems that inspire the story are found at the back of the book, as well as discussion questions.

Families are encouraged to read every day. A schedule is provided, but families may read at their own pace. Students are encouraged to create a shape poem and return to school for display.
