Open House of Literature


District Elementary Schools celebrated literacy with publisher’s night. An event to showcase the writing and reading skills of the district’s youngest authors, teachers, parents and community members came together to view and listen to their original stories and tales.

Each class and author’s work featured a diverse theme and was inspired by the people, activities and places that they love. Creating an interactive experience a “comments to the author” page provided space for readers to reflect on the work. The variety of writings provided personal insight into students’ thoughts and imaginations including “The ABC’s of…” and All About…”, while illustrations described scenes and added visual impact to storylines. In intimate viewing sessions authors practiced their public speaking sills and revealed their books through their voice reading aloud to an eager audience.
