Mt. Pleasant Teachers Read to Students at Evening Event

Mt. Pleasant Elementary faculty and staff treated young visitors to Barnes & Noble with special readings of their favorite children’s books on Thursday night.

Sponsored by the Mt. Pleasant PTA, the Smith Haven Mall bookstore hosted the Pick A Reading Partner Night event.

Teacher Steve Jackowski kicked off the evening by reading what he described as his favorite book, “The Napping House.” He engaged his young audience by getting them to say lines from the book aloud, too.

Fellow teacher Kellie Morris followed by reading, “How the Crayons Saved the Rainbow.” Afterward, she asked the audience to share what could be learned from the book, and someone correctly noted that it teaches that more can be accomplished as a team.

Mt. Pleasant’s Kathryn Dunleavy then read, “Extra Yarn.” Christine Cole, Kaila Carson and Lisamarie Hausch also read to the children.

The fun evening included a scavenger hunt, with participants asked to find in the bookstore a book with a food in the title, a book with English and Spanish, a book with a robot, a book with 100 or more pages, a book that was made into a movie, and a book that rhymes.

A portion of sales from the night will be donated to the Mt. Pleasant PTA.

Fourth graders at Mt. Pleasant Elementary are expanding their vocabulary with a fun twist.

On Thursday morning, librarian Erica Lutz greeted students in Theodore Klug’s class for a game of “Dictionary Go Fish!”

Armed with dictionaries, students used a fishing pole with a magnet for a hook to catch a word in the “pond.” The students, in teams, then had to locate the word in the dictionary to learn the meaning as well as the part of speech — nouns, verbs and adjectives.

Examples of words the students caught included “juvenile,” “bawl,” “angle,” and “inspire.”

The messages included students completing the sentence, “I am thankful for the police because …”

• The police make me feel safe.

• They help us get home if we are ever lost.

• They put their life on the line to help others.

• They help people that need help.
