2011 Literacy Day

On March 2, 2011, we celebrated Literacy Day at Caleb's Creek by dressing up as our favorite book characters and decorating our classroom doors! We even had lots of Mystery Readers come throughout the day to read to different classrooms and upper grade students partnered with lower grade student reading buddies! It was a lot of fun helping the older kids pick out books to read with the younger ones.

 Mrs. DuBois and Mrs. Martin as Elephant and Piggie
 The office staff covered all the main characters from Wizard of Oz!
We always knew the fourth grade teachers were sweet!
M & M's for Chocolate Touch
The door decorations were great this year too! The staff is so good at coming up with creative ways to represent the books without breaking copyright laws by using the characters. They use themes, student writings, purchased book jackets, and more to create such wonderful works of art!
