Our school revealed our One School One Book title, Old Yeller, on Wednesday, January 30 during our Reading is “Dog-gone” Fun Family Night. We kicked off in the gym with staff entertainment. Each family received a copy of Old Yeller as well as completed a stamp card by visiting the following 10 dog-themed stations:
Second grade students visited the library to research dog breeds using the eWISE Research Model. The library hosted a Recycling is “Dog”-gone Fun Contest in which students created a dog using recycled or craft items. Along with the dog created, each student researched their favorite dog and completed an index card with the information listed below:
· Name, Teacher, Grade
· Students in K- 1: (1) fact about the animal
· Students in 2-3: (2) facts about the animal
· Students in 4-5: (3) facts about the animal
Students were encouraged to use the online encyclopedia, Britannica School or nonfiction books from the library.
In celebration of World Read Aloud Day (February 1), we videoed our Battle of the Books team reading Chapter one of Old Yeller and emailed the video to all classroom teachers. At 2:00, all classrooms watched the read aloud.
It has been a busy week! Seeing the smiles on our students' faces has made it all WORTHWHILE!! An exciting READING CULTURE is being built at Southmont!!
