Second Grade Class Goes Batty

12/5/2008 11:23:00 AM

by Deborah K. Frontiera


One of Houston's primary schools celebrates Halloween with Living Literature Day. A second grade class chose Frontiera's book, Eric and the Enchanted Leaf: A Night with Echo.

Every year on the Friday closest to Halloween, instead of celebrating ghosts and goblins, Ashford Primary School (one of over 200 in Houston Independent School District, Houston, TX) celebrates "Living Literature Day." The school's administrators feel this is a better way of enriching the students' education. Each class chooses a favorite book and creates a costume representing that book's main character. All costumes must be "home made" with materials available in the school's art program: poster board, construction paper, glue, paint, craft sticks, etc. At the 2008 event, Mrs. Faye Beth Wilson's second grade class chose Deborah Frontiera's book, Eric and the Enchanted Leaf: A Night with Echo. Each student carried a bat cut from construction paper, decorated with "google eyes" and glitter glue, and attached to a craft stick. Three students were chosen to lead the class carrying posters and a copy of the book. The class then joined all the other classes in a parade of literary characters, marching through the school and in front of parents who came to enjoy the event. The photo with this article was posted on the school's web site.
