Working Towards A Team Goal: Together is Better!
The Third Graders at Mount View Elementary School have been busy this winter and spring planning and making a StoryWalk in the ThorNox Woods located next to their school.
After much planning, problem solving, power voting, decision making, painting, measuring and marking the trails, and putting up posts the MVES StoryWalk is complete. Third graders began to give tours of the MVES StoryWalk on Wednesday June 1.
K-2 classes enjoyed "The Salamander Room".
Grades 4-5 will take tours next week and read "And To Think We Thought We'd Never Be Friends".
A StoryWalk® is a fun, educational activity that places a children’s story (literally a book taken apart) along a popular walking route in your community. You may have seen one placed on posts around the Library, on windows of businesses down Main Street, tied onto the trees and other fixed features in a park, or on the walls down a hallway in a building. Conceived as a way to inspire parents, teachers, and caregivers to take young children out of doors for physical activity and to learn, StoryWalk® helps build children’s interest in reading while encouraging healthy activity for both adults and children.
