Dear PES Families,
Pinehurst Elementary school is about to embark on another great reading adventure! Beginning Tuesday, October 13th we will kick-off our participation in One School One Book and the Global Read Aloud at the same time with the Newbery Honor-winning title, The Year of Billy Miller.
What? Each family is receiving one copy of the book and a reading schedule so that you can read the book aloud together.
When? Kick-off is Oct. 13 and Mrs. Ciccone will read the first chapter at school. You read 2 and 3 at home.
Why? For enrichment, family discussion, school-wide literary bonding, and global connections! Some of our classes are scheduled to Skype with other students in our area and around the world who are reading the same book at the same time!
Overview: Author Kevin Henkes introduces second-grader Billy Miller in this fast-paced and funny story about friendship, sibling rivalry, and elementary school. The Year of Billy Miller includes black-and-white art by Kevin Henkes and is perfect for fans of the Ramona books; Frindle, by Andrew Clements; and the Clementine series.
