Pleasant View Celebrates Literacy!

Posted April 21st, 2017

Pleasant View Elementary celebrated reading and curiosity at its annual Literacy Day!  On April 5, students and staff broke up into their character circles (groups of different-aged students lead by someone who is likely not their teacher).  The theme this year was “Books Open the Door to Curiosity.”  Students traveled to four stations in the building.  The first challenged students to think about a “growth mindset.”  They watched a video and discussed it, talking about facing challenges, asking for help, and growing their brains.  They played some games from around the world at the next station.  One of the games, “Down, Down, Down” is from Austrailia; students toss a bean bag back and forth, getting lower as the game progresses!  At station three, student created monster bookmarks! And finally, at the last station, each student brought a book they are currently reading and talked to the group about it.  After the stations, everyone found a place around the school and silently read for a half hour.  What a way to celebrate reading!

Thank you to the following teachers for organizing this great event:  Lindsay Seamer, Kristin Foley, Loretta Gilbeck, Jessica Werderman, Drew Croegaert, Laura Wilga, Teresa Harrington, Becca VanBlairicome, Matt Gauss, Bev Anderson and Steven Cotton.

Thank you to Mrs. Millage for providing the pictures below!
