Northport K-8 students in Pam Mishler’s first grade class and Lisa Cash’s sixth
grade class made new friends all in the name of literacy recently when the
students paired up to prepare for the school’s vocabulary parade.  Students used
words from their reading text for the year to make vocabulary costumes and  hand
made signs to wear in the parade to celebrate words. Teachers and students used
the book “Miss Alaineus” by Debra Frasier to hone ideas and to prepare to model
their costumes in the vocabulary parade.  The vocabulary parade is just one of
the activities made available to Northport students to participate in Just Read,
Florida’s initiative, “Celebrate Literacy” during the week of January 14-18.
