Green Meadow students showed off their book projects on Wednesday evening at the school’s second annual Literacy Fair, culminating a month long reading initiative. Students created posters, dioramas and Google Slide presentations, and had interactive activities such as a reading tent and bookmark making station.
“It was wonderful to see so many students participate and so many students and families attend the night of the fair,” said Green Meadow librarian Laura Wladarczyk who coordinated the program. “We are planning additional events and activities as the year continues to keep up the reading fun.”
As part of the Literacy Initiative, students tracked how much they read at school and at home. Collectively, the school read more than 160,000 minutes in the month of November, the equivalent of about 16 weeks.
Some students also chose to participate in the Read for Ronald McDonald House program.
“It was nice to see so many students, parents and staff come together to support this worthy initiative to promote reading and raise funds for the Ronald McDonald House,” said Principal Dan Garab. “The projects displayed at the Literacy Fair were as impressive as the large crowd that attended.”
