Elementary schoolers throughout the Lynbrook Public School District grouped together on Sept. 8 to review the engaging stories they read over the summer.
First through fifth graders at Marion Street, Waverly Park and West End elementary schools assembled for their summer reading book clubs with peers who read the same book during the summer break. Students chose between “El Deafo” by Cece Bell, “Here in the Real World” by Sara Pennypacker and “Odder” Katherine Applegate. Each story features characters who, despite considering themselves misfits, demonstrate resilience and courage. Groups sat in a circle to answer questions about important themes and events in their selected story.
Additionally, 96 students in grades 1-5 participated in several virtual activities. First and second graders recorded themselves reading decodable texts, while students in second to fourth grades answered questions about the books they were reading on settings, character traits and lessons learned. Students in fifth grade completed a bingo card that had different reading activities.
