EMILY -- Emily Charter School hosted "I Love to Read Night" on Feb. 23.
Activities based on an animal theme included poetry and Pictionary, clay animal making, Eric Carle paper animal craft, "Cookies and Critters," and a Scholastic Book Fair. Every child who attended was given a free book of their choice.
During "I Love to Read" Month, Emily students learned about author Eric Carle. After watching a video biography and demonstration of Carle's artwork and illustration process, students painted sheets of paper using tricks learned. The children were encouraged to attend the reading night to use sheets they painted during C.A.R.E. time to construct animals and scenery.
