Last Friday, Solomon Schechter Academy’s Amiel Early Childhood Centre launched their 2nd Annual Read-A-Thon, which will run until February 16. This year’s Read-A-Thon is based on the children’s book The Very Hungry Caterpillar by Eric Carle. To help support our 2018 Read-A-Thon, Oink Oink, generously donated 14 books to the Amiel Center Library!
Each child received coloured paper circles where they can record their name, classroom and book title. All the circles will then be put together to form a very long caterpillar which will travel throughout the hallways of the entire school. Along the path the caterpillar will “eat” all the foods depicted in the book. These will be used as milestones to encourage and engage the children to continue reading and bringing in their coloured circles. The goal is for children to read so many books that the caterpillar will reach the end and become a beautiful butterfly.
