Love of Reading Week was great fun and full of activities throughout campus. With special guests from librarians and weathercasters to four-legged friends – our students had a wonderful week celebrating their love of reading.
Each day, students could wear fun and interesting items based on the “Blast off to Reading” theme: crazy socks, red planet day, space day, stars or star of a book day, and crazy hair day.
Among the activities, students made bookmarks to have handy when reading.
April Madison, one of KGUN9 News’ meteorologists, visited Mr. B’s fourth grade and Mrs. Culbertson’s kindergarten classrooms to read to our students.
Dusenberry-River Children’s Librarian Ms. Meg came for a special storytime visit with Ms. Amber and Mr. Jordan’s prekindergarten students. Ms. Meg read books and sang songs with the children. She also had the kids drum their name in syllables, and she taught them a song with sign language to go with it. The storytime was a lot of fun!
A special four-legged friend came to relax with students as they read books.
Middle school students read to a variety of classes – this a kindergarten class – in elementary school.
In Mrs. Rodriguez’s second grade class, middle school students and former “Ducklings” came to read to the Duckling students. The class also joined with their Reading Buddies for some one-on-one reading excitement.
Ms. Adrienne’s second grade students – the Coyotes – completed a Reading Scavenger Hunt as a class, earning them Book-It Pizza Coupons and entering them into a drawing for a Bookmans Certificate.
While we saw a lot of amazing hairdo’s for Crazy Hair Day, we didn’t get the chance to capture many of the updo’s. One Ms. Adrienne captured sure takes the cake…or cupcake!
All of our TCDS students joined together to culminate their week with a Love of Reading Assembly. Books were read in Spanish and Sign Language, and Middle School Music teacher Mr. Mitchell even rapped his way through a book!
A special thank you to our Love of Reading Week committee and all who helped make this week wonderful!
