February is I Love to Read Month and students at Lake Benton Elementa­ry School(LBE) are show­ing their love of reading in a variety of ways. Check out what they have going on at the school.
In the four-year-old preschool class, teacher Amanda Drake has ar­ranged for a new Mystery Reader to visit the class throughout the month. She explained, “I have parents, grandparents, community members and siblings come hide in my box and read a story of their choosing to the stu­dents. The class tries to guess who is in the box af­ter the story is done.” The students enjoy discover­ing someone they know hiding in the box.
