Tate Elementary wins regional reading bowl


Students from Tate Elementary's reading bowl team celebrate their first place finish at the regional level Saturday.

The team competed against schools from across North Georgia by answering questions on books from a list used by all teams.

The team from Pickens High finished second at the high school level of the competition on the same day.

Both teams will advance to the next round in the statewide competition.

The secret of reading fluency in K-1 is in fluency in writing alphabet letters. This is demonstrated in Chapter 20 of the on-line book, "Digitizing Literacy: Reflections on the Haptics of Writing".

We are proud of this close knit group of friends that worked together in a great team effort. Reading and reading comprehension is the basis of an imaginative childhood and a successful adult life. Each member contributed to the answers as well as encouraged the others not to be afraid. A special mention for Mattie who really made a difference at the regionals.

As proud parents of Madelyn Adams we would also like to add that all the students at the reading bowl deserve high recognition just for being selected to compete in such a great event. It is very impressive to see such smart children who we will be placing at the highest levels of our society in the future. Also I would like to say that the staff at Tate Elementary is incredible and go over and beyond the call of duty to educate our children. Thank you Mrs. Hall, Mrs. Teague and the rest of the staff at Tate Elementary for all that you do!
