Better Together Grant Update
Thanks to the Better Together Grant funds, our school now has a storybook walk for students, staff, and families to enjoy! The path goes all the way around our school and features a new story each month.
My favorite part of this project is that all of our second-grade students are in charge of the content. Each month, I present a book trailer for two different diverse texts and have the second-grade students decide which will be featured. After the selection process, each second-grade class helps to create questions for each page of the text. These questions are posted along with the story walk. This involvement has created a sense of ownership, community, and exposed students to more diverse texts. Classes are excited to go for the walk and many students have encouraged their families to go on the walk.
I greatly appreciate your support of this project. It has made such a positive impact! I look forward to seeing where this program continues to take our students and community.
