A group of students from Woodlands Middle School wrote children’s books and then read their works of fiction to kindergarteners at the Lee F. Jackson Elementary School. Some of the books featured titles such as “Going to the Circus,” “The Cheese Wheel,” and “Our Wonderful World of Colors.”
“We were delighted by the visit of the eighth-graders to our school,” said Principal Patricia Simone. “They know firsthand how important it is to read to youngsters to enhance their reading experience.”
Many of the middle school students relived some of their fondest memories from elementary school, which they attended just a few years ago.
“My students had a great time going to Lee. F. Jackson,” said teacher Jodi Manne, who encouraged her students to write during their educational technology class. “They thought it was a great experience. They loved going from class to class sharing the books. We will definitely do this next year.”
