Make-A-Difference Day celebrated at third grade

In Pecos Elementary, the third graders from Michelle Acosta's and Eva Garcia's class have gotten hooked to reading. Motivational incentives by participating in the Book-It Reading Program that is sponsored by Pizza Hut has encouraged students to want to read and write books.

By reading books, students' spelling, grammar and writing abilities are improving tremendously. The students have been easily motivated to write and publish books in English or Spanish in the computer. During art class, they illustrated their own books.

Both of these classes also took part in the Make-A-Difference Day, Oct. 28, which was also being promoted by Book-It. The students decorated flowerpots and potted flowering plants for the elderly at the Pecos Nursing Home. On that Saturday afternoon they took their plant and books to share with members of the nursing home.

Earlier this week, the student's parents donated refreshments to serve at book preview of the students' published books in Pecos Elementary. Visitors were welcomed to view and listen to the books that were read by authors. The students took pleasure in listening to stories and were also delighted with the snacks.

The student-published books were also read to kindergarten children and then they presented their listeners with a treat. The kindergarten students will receive a copy of the student's book for them to illustrate and keep.

A copy of each child's book will also be E-mailed to their Pen Pal in California. Arrangements have been made for their Pen Pals to read and illustrate a third copy of student's book and place it in the school's library of others to enjoy reading it.

The students are still sharing of their wonderful experiences they had in doing nice things for others. They are still sharing of the grand feelings they had in taking part of the happiness they brought the others. The many thank you notes they have been receiving will allow them to hold on to these precious moments they had.
