One Book, One Community
by Sharon Creech
Check out the trailer!
This summer, Spaulding and McAlister students and their families are encouraged to participate in our One Book, One Community reading of Saving Winslow, by Sharon Creech. Every family will be given a book, before the end of the school year, courtesy of the Suffield Public Schools (the youngest child in each family will receive the physical copy of the book). We ask that families read TOGETHER, for the many reasons outlined in the Parent Letter.
As you read together, as a family, please use the Discussion Questions to focus your reading and enrich the discussion of the text. The document also includes many fun activities associated with the reading to further enhance the experience. And, to provide your child with opportunities to help decorate our One Book, One Community bulletin boards at the schools.
When students return to school this fall, they can look forward to many fun activities, discussions, and a culminating assembly to celebrate our shared reading.
If you have any questions, please feel free to contact Joy Tierney, McAlister Library Media Specialist, Kristin Johnson, Spaulding Library Media Specialist, or Christy Baril, K-5 Humanities Curriculum Coach.
