It’s NOT a Box! An evening with Thompson Schools and the Early Childhood Programs

Jimg_4014smudy Tessier and her teaching gurus at Monroe Early Childhood Center passed the word along that ALL the early childhood centers in the Thompson School District were going to have a literacy night at the Conrad Ball Middle School cafeteria.  She asked if Nick and the AiA team would like to experience it.

BookCoverpageThe theme would center around Antoinette Portis’ lovely book, Not a Box. The story involves a very creative young rabbit and the use of a cardboard box to make the most amazing experiences; driving cars, flying in space rockets, dousing fires, experimenting with robotics, and climbing Mt Everest!  Most importantly, no naysayer could sway the young rabbit’s belief in what he/she was doing.

Nick read the story for the first time and decided he and the team should attend the event in ….. you guessed it, a BOX!

Nick donned blue bunny ears and the antics were on, but not before  Judy met us at the Monroe Early Childhood Center Pirate Ship and offered Nick an eye patch and a pirate hat crafted by the scallywag deck hands.

 

Nick shared his spoils with all the kids!

There were boxes and games all over the cafeteria!  What a fabulous literacy event for the children of Loveland.   For more information on Thompson’s Early Childhood Education, click here.
