Read for the Record 2013

Read for the Record

Students at McCormick Elementary School joined millions of students across the United States reading Otis by Loren Long, the book selected for this year's Jumpstart Read for the Record Campaign.

After listening to the story about the friendship between Otis the tractor and a little calf students returned to their classrooms for an activity.  They were joined by high school students, some from Mrs. Dowell's Human Growth and Development class, who visited with them about being friends.  

The activity was a farm scene to color, complete with a picture of Otis.  The students added a photo of themselves with some friends that Mrs. Monser took and printed prior to the event.
