Teachers and Students dress up as their favorite book character on Friday of Literacy Week.
Elsberry Schools was among the many schools across the nation last week celebrating reading during Literacy Week. The week runs simultaneously with the birthday of famous book character, Dr. Seuss. Title I reading teachers, Carol Spratt and Kristen Hagemeier, and Julie Wilson, Elementary Librarian designed a week of fun filled activities to guide the teachers, but teachers could create their own activities for their individual classrooms if they wanted to. The highlight of the week came Thursday evening for Family Fun Night which included grades Kindergarten through sixth. Several activities and a light dinner of hot dogs and chips were provided for students and their families. A total of 243 people visited the book fair in the Elementary Library, enjoyed Bingo for Books in the cafeteria, and had an opportunity to explore the Book Walk exhibit in the gym. Students had the chance to participate in the Book Walk Display by designing their own tri-fold display based on a book they read. The display included information on the author, illustrator, summary of the book, illustrations of the book and a description of their favorite part. Students who participated and did the work for the book walk were entered into a drawing for a Kindle Fire. Winner of the Kindle Fire was Audrey Rockwell.
The themes for the day were Monday, Horton Hears a Who!, wear a t-shirt with a positive message; Tuesday, Fox in Socks, wear silly or mismatched socks; Wednesday, Dress for “Seuss”ess, nice dress for spring picture day; Thursday, The Cat in the Hat, bring a hat and stuffed animal to school to read with; and Friday, Dress like your favorite book character.
Elementary Principal, Tracy Kingsley was elated about the week’s activities and all the hard work put into the activities by the teachers. She added, “It is my hope that every child in our community embraces reading and that every home has books for children to enjoy. Literacy Week is a good opportunity for us to celebrate as a school the fun of reading and its profound connection to learning.”
