Hawthorne Elementary School hosted a drive-thru literacy night Thursday, Feb. 25, reading the book, “Little Chef” by Matt Stine and Elisabeth Weinberg. Turnout was impressive, with 173 students and their families attending, with all students and their families invited to attend.
There were a total of 27 reading stations, most of which featured teachers reading one or two pages of the book. Other teachers were handing out packets that consisted of sight-word activities, decoding activities, vocabulary activities, fluency activities, and comprehension activities all of a food theme and related to tie into the story.
“We also provided parents and families with resources to help with reading at home and students got printable books to practice each reading activity,” said Mindy Hudson, schoolwide title teacher.
All families were provided with a sack dinner which included a type of chip and a sandwich along with a bottle of water. Before families exited the drive-thru event, they were asked to sign in and all students received a free book and bookmark.
“There were a ton of great responses from parents and students as they traveled along listening to teachers read the story,” Hudson said. “We had such a great turnout that we ran out of 300 sandwiches and activities. That meant it was a great night for Mexico Public Schools and teacher, parent and student involvement, which was our goal.”
