Want to Boost Reading Scores? Build Silent Reading Stamina.
OCTOBER 8, 2019
When the 3rd, 4th, and 5th graders at Golden Grove Elementary School in Palm Beach County, FL pad around the classroom in their (possibly) smelly socks, everyone cheers. It’s not because these students and teachers have a peculiar penchant for fetid footsies. Rather, Stinky Feet Day is the students’ hard-earned reward for reaching new benchmarks in silent reading. Linda Edgecomb is the principal of Golden Grove Elementary and a huge fan of Stinky Feet Day.
