Kids' Korner at Macdonough School

KidzLit with Miss Morello October 21, 2013

We are SO LUCKY to work with Miss Morello every Thursday!


She is our facilitator for the KidzLit program.  KidzLit is a literacy program for our Younger participants (in Grades K-2).  Miss Morello shares a book with the children.  The children are encouraged to make several connections to the story (Text to Text, Text to Self, and Text to World).  Following the book, the children complete an enrichment activity based on themes in the book. Most books shared have a character-building component as well.


In the pictures below, you can see the children creating patches for their own “Kids’ Korner Keeping quilt,” an activity based on Patricia Polacco’s picture book, The Keeping Quilt.

Parents,  completed patches have been placed in your Kids’ Korner mailboxes.
