The National Honor Society visited Carlstadt Public School on May 22 to promote literacy by reading books and organizing activities to strengthen reading comprehension.

National Honor Society Adviser Mrs. Colangelo, in coordination with CPS librarian Mrs. Carlin, organized the trip where attendees were given the opportunity to become a narrator and dress up while acting out select scenes of a book.

Three sessions made up of children of different ages were organized, and the books that were read were Can You Make a Scary Face?, Is That Wise, Pig?, Is Everyone Ready For Fun?, and The Doghouse, all written by Jan Thomas. Next, the children were asked to remember the characters from the book, as well as find a moral or lesson that they learned from the reading.

After reading aloud to the elementary students, NHS members broke up into groups in order to make paper bag hand puppets of their favorite animals from the books. The kids were encouraged to be as creative as possible and vary their colors and styles from the prepared models that the NHS students created.

“It was great to see how creative the little kids were and how happy they were to make the puppets,” said Junior GaHyun Yoo.

NHS President Anna Dato commented on the trip, saying, “It was a wonderful opportunity to work with the younger children and see their faces light up when we read to them. I definitely hope the NHS can make this an annual event.”

Junior Rebecca Collette agreed with Anna and said that she would be more than happy to participate in this same event next year.
