A community of middle school readers from Salk and Wisdom Lane middle schools gathered at Levittown Memorial Education Center to peruse the multitude of school projects created in relation to this year’s required reading selection of “Counting by 7s” by Holly Goldberg Sloan. The goal of the READ Showcase was to highlight the various projects completed during this fall’s classroom book discussion events.
“Students expressed their creative sides through art, English language arts and technology, connecting these three different disciplines with literature,” Director of K-12 English Kerin Slattery explained. “The event also brought together a community of readers.”
During the event, students and their families read essays and class reports, made observations about art projects, and tried their hands at games created by the use of technology. In addition, the district held a Makerspace room activity in which students made cards for children residing in hospitals over the holiday season.
