Jordak marks family literacy

March is Family Literacy Month, and students at Jordak Elementary School were in for a big surprise to mark the occasion when they walked in the doors on March 1. Students found hallways transformed with decorations, new vocabulary words and meanings, facts about bats and skunks as well as the word “BAT” made out of big letters on the school bulletin board.

As the day went on, students discovered all of the items were clues about the book all students will be reading this month called “A Boy Called BAT.” Each student received their own copy of the book at school to read with their families throughout the month. In school, students will answer daily questions about the story as a way to encourage and reward attentive listening.
