Manhasset students from Munsey Park Elementary School and Shelter Rock Elementary School celebrated Children’s Book Week from Nov. 14-18. Members of the Manhasset School Community Association (SCA) ran a fun-filled week in each school building to promote literacy and a love of reading.
This year’s theme was “How do you BOOK?” and students completed a handout at home where they wrote and illustrated the theme. Throughout the week, each class in grades K-4 visited their respective school library to participate in a read-aloud of a book selected for their grade level. Special guests such as building principals and loved ones volunteered their time to be guest readers. To make the visits extra special, some volunteers dressed in costumes based on the book that was being read. After the read-aloud, each class had fun guessing who was under the costume.
The week was a success as students enjoyed hearing new stories and interacting with the guest readers.
