We are very excited to hold our second annual Caldecott Carnival on Tuesday, January 28, from 5:30 p.m. – 7:30 p.m. Our students have been learning about the Caldecott Award, which is given annually to the best illustrated children’s book. From a selection of 18 choices, your child will have the opportunity at our Caldecott Carnival to do three amazing art activities based on some of these award winning books. All of the activities have been shown on our morning news show this week, so your child probably already knows what he/she wants to do! This is a drop-in event. In other words, you move through your selected activities at your own pace. Within the two-hour time frame, you come when you can and leave when you must. You will have the opportunity to pre-order Marco’s Pizza so that dinner isn’t an obstacle. Please see this flyer for more details, including the order form for pizza, which must be returned to school by Thursday, January 23. The link to sign up for the activities is listed below. Please individually register each child. We can’t wait to see you!
Each morning on our WRES news show, we will present trivia questions about books and/or book characters. We will also have an author scavenger hunt in the media center on Thursday, January 30. Your child will learn information about popular authors from class-made posters.
See the schedule below for our dress up days. These will culminate on Friday, January 31 with our annual Book Character Parade. On that day, the students and staff will dress up as book characters and parade around the courtyard. The parade will begin at 8:35 a.m. and we would love to have many parents and other family members cheering us on. Come and join the fun!
