Literacy Week was a huge success at Weatherbee Elementary. We had several planned events that helped promote literacy and get the students excited about reading. To start the week off, students participated in the “Million Minute Marathon” where WBE read 17,421 minutes! Another powerful activity was the “Buddy Reading” between different grade levels. It was great to see the older students teaching the younger ones and the little ones sharing their fluency with older students who they look up to. The week ended with our wonderful community members sharing their favorite book with the students. The students really enjoyed hearing from police officers, firefighters, district employees and they especially loved learning about sportsmanship and goals from IRSC Women’s Basketball Team.
What a fantastic week promoting literacy at Weatherbee Elementary!
