Dear GES Families,
A copy of Gooseberry Park by Cynthia Rylant should have arrived at your home today. Each family at our school is receiving one copy of this book. This is part of our school wide One Book, One School Program. Everyone (teachers, administrators, custodians, etc.) in the school will be reading this book at home during the next five weeks. We are asking you to enjoy time and read Gooseberry Park to your children. This is a wonderful story about friendship.
Below is a schedule of the chapters that we will be reading each week. There will be weekly trivia questions from these chapters with prizes awarded at the end of each week. At the end of the program, we will have an outdoor One School, One Book event sponsored by the PTA and Volunteer Steering Committee. There will be sledding, an obstacle course, food for sale, and winter crafts designed around this wonderful book on February 18th from 4-8PM. Enjoy!
Here is the schedule of chapters:
Chris Wallin, Reading Specialist
Here is a copy of all the trivia questions that learners are asked to answer. Read the chapters with your child and then ask them the questions. You can write the answers for them. Entry forms will be handed out each Friday. Our goal here is to encourage comprehension and understanding. Turn answers in by Thursday each week, there will be weekly drawings on Friday for prizes. Good Luck and have FUN!
