Jessica Sarver from Madison School writes,“We just finished our One School, One Book project, and it was a huge success! I would love to share some of the highlights with you! You can also see the video summary of our project here.
To kickoff our project, we had a Charlie and the Chocolate Factory Assembly. You can see pictures from our assembly here. Some of the highlights: Students received their books wrapped as “Waverly Bars” (our school name). Students with a golden ticket in the back of their books were picked to play games. Our Superintendent came dressed as Willy Wonka, and brought the Assistant Superintendent and Director of Technology as Oompa Loompas. We read as a school, and played 4 Willy Wonka themed games (lickable wallpaper, blueberry squeeze, chocolate pie, and bad egg). During the month of October, we used the trivia you provided each morning and also took the Roald Dahl Character quiz at www.roalddahl.com. We graphed the staff and student results of this quiz.
Our public library hid golden tickets in some of their books, too!
After we were finished reading the book as a school, we had a family movie night to watch Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory.”
