Woodbury celebrated a fantastic Nevada Reading Week as we Found Our Superpowers by Reading! We honored this annual event from February 25 to March 1. We hosted author Laurie B. Arnold. She traveled from Washington to do an assembly for our 6th graders. In addition, there were spirit days, so students dressed for fun. The coolest theme had kids generate their superhero names and then wear them on MY NAME IS tags. We had a great turnout for our book swap which allowed students to exchange their old books for new ones. We also had Book Bingo every morning and a Mystery Game Master Contest. Some students went on a Reading Tour and read to Longhorns in other classrooms. There was also a Bookmark Contest. Our Scavenger Hunt had kids doing literacy tasks to earn tubs of Jelly Bellys. As Poetry Jam ran through the week, there was a poetry contest. You can read the winning poems below. We had a fabulous Door Decorating Contest. Roxanne Franco’s classroom won first place and the 200s hallway won the Spirit Award. We even had a Reading Plus Contest. Mr. Hager’s period 1 and 2 class won by completing 69 combos!
He flipped through a book
About a hero and a crook
He wanted to be a hero
That saves the world in a cape
He thought he was too weak
and he became sad
But he then realized reading is the best power he had
I can not help but stop and look at the supergirl.
Doesn’t she look wonderful with her bright, pink, sparkly cape on?
Does it make you blush?
Reading! It’s such a great thing.
Find your superpower
and use it to climb that reading tower!
