Staley One School, One Book

Staley Elementary kicked off their One School, One Book month today (April 30th) with DJ Buzzin, Marcus Campos (thanks to the Staley PTG) getting students up and moving with “Who Let The Dogs Out” and other songs tied into the theme.  


Over the next five weeks, the Staley community and families will all be reading the same book. K-2nd graders will receive, “Goldie Blox and the Best! Pet! Ever!”, By Stacy McAnulty. Guests brought in their pets on stage, a cat, dog, and reptiles. 

Every 3rd-6th-grade student will receive, “The Wild Robot”, by Peter Brown. The books should be read at home each night following the included calendar that students will receive with their books. Each morning at school, students will participate in trivia questions based on the reading from the night before. Students may refer back to the text when answering questions, so the school asks that they bring back the book to schools with them each day. Parents are asked to take the opportunity to read with their child(ren) every night and have fun discussing the book. Kindergarten, 1st and 2nd-grade teachers will receive one class copy of “The Wild Robot”, that they will read the book aloud in their classrooms. Both books have a robotics theme.


Many thanks to the OSOB committee members who put this event together: Ashley Reith, Danyelle Stevens, Jill Schaal, Rebecca Ferby, Kaitlin Hayes, Tammy Brement, Tracy Wenndt, Denice Luczak (husband made the bear crate).


Reading aloud sharpens the imagination, creates healthy dialogue and engenders in children a love of reading.  Children who learn to listen eventually learn to read and literacy skills provide the basis for a lifetime of learning and productivity.  When children listen, they learn about their own lives and the stories of others around the globe. In addition, reading to children strengthens the emotional bonds between the adult reader and the child, providing those positive parent-child connections essential to a child’s psychological health and academic growth.*
