Summer Reading Kickoff
I am so excited to see all the great ideas and excitement growing for our "Reading Kickoff". I know many of you will be having your meetings today to share what we discussed at the last ELA meeting. Ginny & I are happy to help any grade level that needs ideas or wants to bounce any ideas off of us. Remember that the activities should get students excited about reading over the summer, be educationally based, and tie into the superhero theme. Once you have decided on an activity be sure to share your information on the GoogleDoc.
There will be two levels of rotations (K-3 & 4-6).
Stations will be a half-hour (this will include transition time).
Teachers will stay stationary, while teaching assistants escort the classes.
K-3 & 4-6 will both have a 50 minute assembly from BeatleZania.
Specials will be that day, but will be at different times (Schedule will be introduced at next faculty meeting).
Lunch that day will be our school wide BBQ (schedule will be slightly different that as regularly scheduled).
There will be a built in time block for a "Reading Marathon" in independent books (details to follow).
Teachers dressing as superheroes is highly encouraged!
