One School One Book

Let’s Start Reading

School Days According to Humphrey!

 

For the next three weeks, Chanute Elementary students, their siblings, parents, grandparents, guardians and friends will all be reading the same book. There will be classroom activities and vocabulary to learn but the reading will be done as a family at home every night.

mystery guest gives clues about OSOB bookThis is the eighth year for the One School One Book school-wide literacy program at CES. A copy of School Days According for Humphrey, by Betty G. Birney, was given to each family with children at CES. The goal is for every student to read the book aloud at home with their family.  A reading schedule keeps everyone reading at the same pace which may take 15 minutes each night.

Strange as it may seem, this program makes sound educational sense, said CES Principal Eric Hoops.

Reading aloud at home is valuable because:

  • it better prepares a child to be an effective reader
  • it’s fun
  • it’s a worthwhile family activity 

Teachers will send home questions for discussion among the family members. Students who return their answer sheet to their classroom teacher each week will be entered into a drawing for prizes. Classes will compete to see which grades can turn in the most answers to the trivia questions. The winners will get a PE class to roll in the giant hamster ball.

This is a school wide literacy event to promote the fun and love of reading. Please join in and don’t forget to send selfies of the family reading together. CES likes to post pictures!

Below is a photo of the book that is a link to audio recordings of the chapters for each night's assignment for those who miss a night of reading with their family. Enjoy!
