Make Reading Come Alive is entering its 6th year at Casis.  Katie and Megan both realized that although there were many after school activities for kids offered, there needed to be something special just for Kindergarten aged children.  An age that is special.  Full of curiosity, but also nervousness or maybe not ready to be with older kids in an activity.  An age that reading begins its foundation, and we need to jump on that foundation with fun and excitement!  ​An age that they both know very well with almost 20 years of Kindergarten experience between the 2 of them.  'Book club', as we refer to it on a day to day basis at school, was created.  MaDe by Kindergarten teachers for Kindergarten kiddos!

Katie Bonsmann has been teaching Kindergarten for 12 years!  It is her daily dose of laughter and she absolutely loves watching them grow throughout the year.  She has been married to Derrick for 3 years and is 'Mama' to a 4 year old little boy named Reef.  In her spare time she loves seeing the world through Reef's eyes, traveling, and reading.
