“Write to Read Week”: Evamere activities, March 18-22
Monday, March 18: Welcome to Evamere, Troy Cummings! Students will wear their Evamere class shirts. (Pre-Order Books Delivered Monday and Thursday)
Tuesday, March 19: Map Day. Just like Alexander explores the map of his new town, Stermont, in the book, Evamere students will complete a map-related activity in their classrooms with their teachers.
Wednesday, March 20: Pet Day. To celebrate Troy’s picture book, Can I Be Your Dog?, students will bring in photos of their pets, and/or a stuffed animal pet. Just like the dog does in the book, students will write letters in their classroom in the “voice” of their pets.
Thursday, March 21: Mismatched Day. When Alexander arrives at his new school, after a run-in with a balloon goon where he loses a shoe, the secretary, Mr. Hoarsely, makes him wear a mismatched galosh. Students can wear silly mismatched socks, clothes, or shoes this day.
Friday, March 22: Friendship Friday. Alexander is the new kid in a new town, and he makes some pretty good friends while he’s battling the silly monsters of Stermont. Students will celebrate friendship this day, and reaching out to make new friends, by sitting with someone new at lunch, or playing with someone new at recess, or saying one nice thing to five people.
Troy will be doing a book signing at the Learned Owl on March 20 from 4-6 pm. Stop by and say Hi!
