Jonas Salk Elementary school students and their parents experienced a unique Family Reading Night Thursday evening.
Instead of guest readers and rooms featuring various reading genres, participants were asked to read and follow written or computerized directions for making a variety of items and performing a variety of activities.
Two rooms were dedicated to Origami, one for children is kindergarten through second grade and another for children in grades 3 through 5.
Another room featured an NCCA scavenger hunt on the computer. Yet another was dedicated to a website with science showcase ideas.
The cafeteria was turned into an assembly line for making trail mix with each child given written directions to read and follow.
