Literacy Night

Clip to ScrapBook #3

We did one last year that was really successful.

Each grade level chose an author. We chose David Shannon. We read a story by that author then the students did an activity. We read How I Became a Pirate and the students drew on a picture of themselves (taken as they came in) so they looked like a pirate then they wrote about how they became a pirate. After about 30-45 mins. we all went to the cafeteria for milk, cookies, and a bedtime story by the principal.

Each child left with a book from the author we chose. We gave out A Bad Case of the Stripes. The parents loved it and the kids had a ball!
