West School Hosts Literacy Fair

Schools and Libraries

May 20, 2014



West School in Long Beach hosted its first literacy fair on May 15 for the entire student body. Students were asked to pick their favorite book and fashion a suitcase from a cardboard box. They decorated the outside of the suitcase in a way that pertained to the book, and then put five things inside the suitcase that related to the characters, plot, setting or theme of the book. On the evening of the literacy fair, students invited their parents to view their suitcases, which were on display for all to enjoy.
