K-6 students enjoy fun literacy events

Students in Kindergarten through 6th grade enjoyed several fun literacy activities in May including a book swap, a storywalk of "The Giving Tree", dress like a book character day and parade, and a read-a-thon with their reading buddies!
"As the librarian at MCS, I am constantly looking for opportunities to make reading fun," said Mrs. Michelle Johnson. "When students are having fun reading they don’t look at it as a chore, but instead a treat. Our special events and Literacy Fridays gave our MCS community a chance to participate in fun activities while reading or listening to readers." 
Here is the full list of events:

May 2-6 | The Book Swap - Students brought in 1-3 books and chose different books from the book swap during their library visit.

May 6 | Literacy Friday: Lunch & Listen - A special guest read aloud while the students ate lunch or a snack.

May 9-13 | Storywalk - Classes visited the storywalk of "The Giving Tree" set up near the fire pit.

May 13 | Literacy Friday: Guest Teacher Visit - Teachers shared a picture book, a reading skill, and an accompanying activity.

May 17 | Columbus Library Summer Reading Program - A Columbus Library spokesperson shared about the Summer Reading Program.

May 20 | Literacy Friday: Read-a-thon - Students found fun ways to read and spent time in a good book with their reading buddies.

May 20 | Book Character Day and Parade - Students and staff chose a favorite book character, dressed as that character, and paraded around the MCS parking areas.
