Every year, Lanier hosts a literacy night to encourage families to have fun reading and learning together. This year, nearly 200 attended!
Students wore their finest dress clothes or dressed as their favorite celebrity for the evening as they visited multiple stations designed to show how much fun reading can be.
This year's literacy night had multiple stations including a living wax museum presented by the 2nd graders. There, visitors pressed on a button to see the characters come to life. Students dressed and represented characters like Amelia Earhart, Sacajawea, Walt Disney, Steve Irwin, Abraham Lincoln, Albert Einstein, and more.
There was also an online research database station featuring PebbleGo biographies where students could independently learn about important figures.
At the literacy station, students read biographies of famous entertainers, athletes, authors, political leaders, and inventors. There were also fiction books on display for families to read together.
To remember the night, a selfie station was set up for students and their families where they could use different props to make themselves look like one of the people presented during the event.
The purpose of all the stations was to show students possibilities are endless when they use their imaginations and work together!
