Congrats to our November Star of the Month!Congrats to our November Star of the Month for the 2023-2024 school year, Judith! Judith is an 8th grader at DuBois Middle School in Pittsfield, MA. She has worked hard learning English as a second language and is now reading over 140 wpm in English! Here is what Judith's teacher, Ms. Viggiano, had to say about her:

Judith came to the United States in 4th grade, then the pandemic hit along with online learning. Imagine being an immigrant trying to learn English and core academics online. When I met Judith in middle school reading and writing in English, her second language, seemed to lag behind her innate potential. She worked extremely hard in the Read Naturally Program and Word Warm Ups Live.

Judith worked so hard in Read Naturally and has made gains in her reading level and fluency so that she is now reading over 140 wpm in English. She works particularly hard on story retells and writing in English, her second language. She is so engaged that she has been heard to say, "The period is over already!?" I could not be more proud of her progress and her hard work. I truly could not think of a more deserving student to be a Read Naturally star of the month than Judith.

Way to go, Judith!
