You're probably thinking, "Ok, everyone has read The Hunger Games. The movie is HUGE right now." You're right, it is. But, I live in a rural area. The elementary school that I teach at (that feeds into SJHS) is a Title 1 school, which means that we have over 50% of our students on free and reduced lunch. For many families, there isn't money left over for extras, like books. A lot of students don't have any books in their home. I wanted to give our students, especially those that are "reluctant readers", the opportunity to own their own copy of such a wonderful book.
But, here is a picture of the school Monday morning (note the horrible, gray sky! It was 43 degrees and rainy!)
Here's me, sporting my button (why yes, I do have an "I Love Lucy" vitameatavegamin poster in my classroom...BEST. EPISODE. EVER)
As you can see, I have not yet mastered the fine art of taking a picture of myself without it looking like I have 5 chins. Believe it or not, this was the best....
Pictures of the books :)
I went back over on Thursday during my planning and was able to hand out books to a class of students (many of whom I remember from their elementary school days!) Here are some pictures Mrs. Bates was awesome enough to send me! I just want to thank Mr. Dorman (the SJHS principal), Mrs. Bates (the SJHS librarian), Mrs. Swab (whose class I invaded) and the World Book Night organization for allowing me to take part in this. I hope to be able to participate again next year.
