This is our 22nd (I think) Reading Adventure Night that we have had at Lewis and Clark. We have made some changes over the years. We used to host two nights; one for 1st and 2nd grade and another for 3rd, 4th, and 5th graders. For the last 2 years we have streamlined the event to one evening for 2nd and 3rd graders. We start the evening right after school on a Friday and stay until 7:30pm. We have snacks, pizza, listen to a storyteller, and participate in 4 different activity rooms. The activities are purely fun...book title Pictionary, making bookmarks, miniature golf book discussions, and reading.
This night ABSOLUTELY could not happen without MANY volunteers! Parents send in all the food/paper items needed, teachers run the rooms, administrators stay late, PTA pays for pizza and room materials, and Mrs. Haynes does all the organizing for the event...permission slips, groupings, volunteer notes, and so much more. Even Mr. Haynes got into the action this year by not only providing the amazing storytelling component of the evening, but also by rescuing me and picking up cups...I kind of forgot about those:)
All in all, it was a great evening of reading fun.
