During the month of October the preschool students were challenged to read books (or have someone read books to them for younger students). They were participating in a program seen on Joyce’s blog Childhood Beckons.
During the first week of October the students solicited sponsors to donate a canned food or non-perishable food item for every book they read during the month.
Then, for two weeks, the students read and read and read. They were gaining new adventures and strengthening their language and vocabulary skills with each book they read.
Then during the final week of October, the students collected the canned foods from their sponsors. We plan to donate these foods to local organizations to help with individuals and families in need of healthy foods to eat.
This picture of canned foods is only a small portion of the ?collected cans and non-perishable food items. Thank you so much for your generosity and for your reading adventures.
