Flashlight Fridays for Edmonson's Fabulous Firsties
School: Edmonson Elementary
First grade is all about learning to read. To instill a love of reading and to make everyday reading practice more engaging, I would use this grant money to purchase flashlights, batteries, and new books for our fabulous first graders at Edmonson. Everyone will become excited and look forward to âFlashlight Friday". This weekly activity would involve students in reading independently or with a partner, high interest books (science/social studies) with flashlights. Turning off the lights, spreading out on the floor or under a desk, may sound simple, but anything out of the ordinary can make reading more interesting and memorable. Add a flashlight, some special books and let the learning adventure begin.
