Last Monday, Behind the Book made a final visit to Ms. Brown’s fifth grade classroom at PS 76. The room was all decorated for our arrival.
Everyone was really excited to see Elizabeth Levy, the author whose book, Danger and Diamonds, they had all read. With her help, they wrote their own mystery book, which featured all the students, Ms. Brown, and even their principal, Mr. DeBerry, in starring roles!
After everyone got settled in, Liz showed them the published book on the Smart Board.
Then, everyone read the book all together. There was even a special guest – the principal, Mr. DeBerry!
After reading, the students each got their own copy, and were treated to Munchkins and hot chocolate. They signed Liz Levy’s copy, and had a blast celebrating their accomplishments.
And, of course, we’re indebted to Columbia Community Service for their grant, which made these programs possible.
It was really fun!
