Reading Adventure Nights

Well, our annual Reading Adventure Nights have come and gone for 2009. Over 320 Lewis and Clark students in 1st-5th grade stayed after school on Jan. 23 or Feb. 20 to participate in fun reading activities.

I can't thank the L&C PTA enough for supporting and sponsoring this event for our kids. They pay for our wonderful storyteller and for the pizza dinner each year. I appreciate CiCi's Pizza giving us a great deal on the close to 100 pizzas we consume on those evenings. I am so appreciative to have great administrators who will stay late on a Friday night so these events can happen for our kids. Parent volunteers make this night possible also. Parents get our snack ready and deliver it to rooms as well as serve pizza and drinks and monitor the kids while eating dinner. Lastly, staff members from LC run the student rooms for the night. I could absolutely not have Reading Adventure Nights without their help.

These nights are strictly fun for kids...we play pictionary with book…

Read Across America

Celebrate the works of Theodor Seuss Geisel with kids the week of March 2nd. Happy Birthday, Dr. Seuss!

Show Me Award Program

This year, like every year, our 1st and 2nd grade readers participated in the Missouri Show Me Award Reading Program. We read all 10 books together from August thru February. When we have read all 10 nominees, each child gets to vote for their very favorite nominee. This year, was a record breaking year...every single class (all 10) cast the most votes for the very same book. That book was Hero Cat. In one first grade class, every single student voted for Hero Cat! We will wait with much anticipation for the announcement of the state wide winner. A big thank you to all the first and second grade teachers for giving me the time to share the Show Me Nominees with their students.

Page Turners

Page Turners is a book club for 3rd, 4th, and 5th grade students at Lewis and Clark School in Liberty, Missouri. Our 2nd grade students have been invited to join us beginning March 18th. We are a group of kids and teachers who love to read. We meet every Wednesday morning and most of the time we simply read...what a concept. No book reports or dioramas here:). Sometimes we blog, talk about the books we are reading, recommend great books, but mostly we just get comfy and read. We enjoy books, newspapers, comic books, graphic novels, magazines, and anything else we desire.
