Story Time (Story telling & Story reading)

Story time isn’t just for little kids, although it’s an excellent way to engage young students and introduce them to the pleasures of reading. For older students who can already read, consider making story time an “open mic” event. Have story hour once a month and have students sign up for five- or 10-minute slots in which they can tell or read an original story to younger students. For older students, read out a continuing story or a novel each week.
