Literacy For Life!!!
This is the final post in a 6-part series. Either scroll down the Literacy for Life category, or, here is PART ONE of this project….
Wow – today was the day!!! I’m so proud of my students, they are WONDERFUL!
The bags were loaded, decorated and organized, ready to go….
Each bag contained a CD burned with all 23 book recordings, one board book, one hand-written letter, three brochures from Jim Trelease’s website, and an introductory letter from me. Here is a sample student letter written by Lily:
We climbed aboard the buses, and were soon delivered to the front door of Falmouth Hospital. I quietly led a long line of third graders through the lobby, up the stairs, and into the Maternity Ward… We waited quietly while babies and tour guides were gathered….
A little down-time as we waited for the bus – I taught the kids 7-Up. Some of them had never played!
When we returned to school, we had a quick, impromptu dance party. We’ve been listening to will.i.am all week – What I Am is the song, and he has some Sesame Street friends helping him sing!
