One District One Book
VFEE recently awarded their largest grant ever to Knights, Dragons and Castles, Oh My!
The kick off for One District, One Book occurred on Thursday, March 26th, 2015 with an all school assembly. There were lots of fun activities planned to get the children excited about this reading adventure!
Each Verona family received a copy, via the youngest child, of Kenny and the Dragon by Tony DiTerlizzi, along with a reading calendar. Families shared reading time for a chapter each night. Students across all four schools blogged about their reading. Since the book takes place in Medieval Times, each grade learned about a topic from that time period. This was followed by an all school assembly where students shared the many, amazing things that were learned.
As a culminating experience, members of the New Jersey Renaissance Faire presented to all four elementary schools over the course of two days. Brookdale Avenue School students visited Forest Avenue School for the faire on Friday, April 17. All grades, K-4, participated in this all day event.
Teachers, lead by Corissa Walker, perform their introduction dance routine to students at Brookdale Avenue Elementary School.
