Husmann Elementary Helping Out

Over the last three years, teachers and students at Husmann Elementary have been working diligently to promote the mission of A to Z Literacy Movement. Husmann first graders found out what it was like to donate books to a school in Africa that did not have literacy resources like in their own 1st grade classroom. Inquiry based learning inspired a group of fifth grade students to fund raise and purchase Aqua Packs after reading about the hardships Zambian children their age face on a daily basis and researching what they could do to help Zambian students have access to a much needed resource – clean water.  Fourth grade students utilized writing workshop time to create small books to send to Zambian students while learning about Zambia’s culture and way of life through a literacy station. These projects have benefited students here and across the globe by increasing literacy levels and the love of learning.
