Students from Putnam Avenue Upper School enjoy reading activities and events outside of school time with a PAUS reading specialist.
One event occurred this past May when students spent a Saturday in Boston exploring graphic novels and comic books during the national Free Comic Book Day. Miss Baker, a reading specialist from Putnam Ave. Upper School, and a group of 6th, 7th, and 8th graders perused Newbury Comics and Comicopia in Boston. Students were able to pick several free comic books as part of the program.
Another exciting event was Books “N” Pizza that took place during the summer months. Miss Baker met interested students at the Cambridge Public Library where together, they explored the Teen room, talked books, and even played some Frisbee. The hot summer was the perfect opportunity for students to enjoy a cool read under a tree in the CPL’s green space.
