We have several holiday literacy activities taking place at Southmont!!!
In order to encourage reading and creativity, we are hosting our first Book Character Ornament Contest. The contest involves creating an ornament that resembles a book character. All ornaments are being displayed on the tree in the entranceway of the school for the month of December and then will be sent home.
A grade level winner will be chosen by a panel of judges and awarded a new book or a Top Secret UV Pen.
This contest has generated a lot of discussion on book characters and the students are so proud of their new keepsake.
We are also planning a Holiday Book Swap on Friday, December 14th. Each student will bring in 5 gently used books to swap for 5 books to take home. Our goal is for all of our students to have new reading material over the break.
The Holiday Book Swap will take place in our library and will resemble a book store where students will select their 5 new books and receive a new bookmark.
We hope the holiday literacy activities will get our students excited about READING!
