Sharing reading between the ages.

LUDINGTON — Once a month students from Ludington Area Schools Franklin Elementary visit with residents of Ludington Woods Assisted Living and Memory Care and practice their reading skills.

“The students are from kindergarten to second grade,” teacher Beth Kirby says. “They are reading from books we received from an Oriole Foundation grant. All month they practice their books so when they go to Ludington Woods they can practice their reading skills. The students really look forward to coming here and very proud of their abilities.”

“We are happy to have the Franklin reading group here,” says Jessica Billings, Ludington Woods life enrichment director. “They enjoy the monthly visit and engaging with the children has been wonderful for them. Some of the residents were school teachers so they particularly enjoy visiting with the students and spending time with them.”
