Students at Pattee’s Learning Center recently completed their spring reading program, “The Reading Caterpillars,” in which each student had to read books to their parent, guardian or teacher.
After reading a book, the parent, guardian or teacher recorded the name of the book and returns a report to the teacher. Each student had a caterpillar on the classroom wall and receives a new circle for a body segment for each book read.
The goal is to build the caterpillar to go all the way around the classroom in just five weeks. All in all, it would take 526 books to make it around the room.
Students Reva Douglas, Mattie Pickerill, Elizabeth Nunan and Addi Huber read 717, 296, 246 and 100 books respectively. The rest of the students in the class read in the 25 to 60 range.
