RYNJ Celebrates RED Day

RYNJ celebrated RED week in the first grade. RED stands for Read Every Day. The week was spent on activities focused on reading and books. Each day the children were given the opportunity to read independently and for every ten minutes they read they were able to fill out a RED sticker with their name on it. The stickers were placed on the giant R, E, D letters hanging in the hall. By the end of the week the letters were all filled up with stickers!

Students finished off the week by having a RED Day celebration on Friday that was amazing! All the children and teachers came dressed in red. The day was kicked off with a read aloud by Rabbi Price, RYNJ head of school. He read a hilarious book called “Stuck” by Oliver Jeffers to the entire grade. Then each class got their first clue to get them started on a RED Day treasure hunt all around the school. The boys and girls did an incredible job figuring out where each clue was taking them. There was so much excitement when each class found the treasure in Mrs. Summers’ office, RYNJ lower school principal. There was a basket for each class containing clip on book lights for each child. Everyone got to decorate a square for the reading quilt that will soon hang in the first grade hallway. The fun continued as the children got to “chill out” with a good book. Everyone ate ices and shared book reviews of their favorite books. The children got to hear one more read aloud in their classrooms and then headed to the beit midrash for a fantastic skit starring their teachers, who put on a great rendition of “Goldilocks and the Three Bears.” They are most definitely ready for Broadway!
