Students at Cherry Lane school transformed into book worms, as they participated in weeklong activities that promoted and celebrated Read Across America from March 1-5.

Coordinated by reading teachers Mrs. Danielle Emmel and Ms. Kasey Krug, the activities began with a virtual read-a-thon, where all classes zoomed one another and collected stamina data. On Tuesday, students read “silly” books and dressed in silly outfits. On Wednesday, the theme of the day asked students to pay attention to the words around them, as they wore shirts with words on them.

In addition, kindergarten teacher Mrs. Leigh Malinsky coordinated a schoolwide virtual BINGO event on Thursday, where School Principal Mrs. Susan Folkson was the BINGO caller. Students created their own BINGO boards, practiced writing numbers and strengthened their knowledge on place value concepts and number recognition.

To complete the weeklong celebration, students were extremely excited to dress as their favorite character or person in a fiction or nonfiction book on Friday. They brought in their books to show to the class.
