Pauluk Family Grant: Launching Literacy through the Nutmeg Nominees

  • School Year: 2014-2015
  • Applicants: Tobey Mintz, Lead Teacher Deborah Kotler
  • School: Webster Hill
  • Subjects: Language Arts

Using selections from the 2015 Connecticut Nutmeg Book Award Nominees, all Webster Hill Elementary School fourth and fifth grade students will have the opportunity to engage in literature focused discussions, activities and projects (including creating a video trailer) throughout the course of the entire academic year. In an effort to reach as many students as possible, clubs will be offered before and after school, at recess and during lunch. A parent/student book club will also meet monthly in the school library. A highlight of the program will be an end of the school year Summer Reading Assembly for the Webster Hill Community for a showing of all video book trailers.
