FDES Monthly Literacy Themes

The staff and students at FDES are already very busy reading this year.  In fact, students are taking home books every night!

During the 2019-2020 school year, FDES will have a monthly reading theme starting in October.  A specific genre or topic will be celebrated and encouraged each month.  Reading buddies across grade levels will meet once a month to share books related to the monthly focus.

Here are the topics for each month:

    • October: spooky/Halloween/mystery/fall books
    • November:  family/thankful/fall books 
    • December: holidays around the world/gingerbread books
    • January: winter/snow/weather books
    • February: hearts/love/friendship books
    • March: fairy tales/St. Patrick’s Day books
    • April: spring/Easter/poetry books
    • May TBD


A special thank you to Mrs. Stock, Ms. Trimmer, and the Literacy Committee for planning our Monthly Literacy Themes.
