Hosted by Malcolm Mitchell, Reading Rallies, are a signature Read with Malcolm literacy initiative. The 30-minutes in school program takes a traditional author’s visit and streams it LIVE directly into your classroom. You can combine the LIVE stream with an on-site pep rally with your students for a high-energy, innovative reading experience for the entire school.
A magician, included in the virtual stream, adds unexpected excitement, and every student receives a copy of Malcolm’s book. Teachers receive a Read with Malcolm Teacher’s Guide to extend learning in the classroom and connect with Read with Malcolm’s year-round virtual reading challenges.
