Gillispie “Gem” of the Week

photo4.110248

Ms. Long’s Grade 5 students have been working since the beginning of the school year to earn a certain amount of compliments for their excellent behavior – and they did it!

The prize for their accomplishment was a voted-upon group reward of a full-day “Read-In” – a day where they got to celebrate their love of literature. They spent the day reading independently, listening to read-alouds, sharing with their book buddies, and watching a movie version of Grade 5’s summer reading book, Hoot.

According to one Grade 5 student, “I had lots of fun during our Read-In, and I hope we get to do it again!”
