Terrific 2×2’s

McGowen Elementary Learning Commons is participating in the Terrific 2 x 2 program again this year.  It is for students in 1st and 2nd grade.

Here’s how the program works:
1. Students will read 10 of the Texas 2×2 books.
2. Students will document the books they have read on a reading log.
3. Once 10 books have been read, the student will be CROWNED and have his or her picture taken and placed on a special display in the hallway behind the library.
4. Each Terrific 2 x 2 reader will also be invited to be a special guest on the KMES morning show!
