Kindergarten students at Grandview had help identifying sight words and nonsense words from a bunny and a skunk on April 1.
Mrs. Bright and Mrs. Cogan dressed up as bunny and skunk characters from the book the classes read together, The Easter Bunny's Assistant, as they worked on reading skills.
Both classes sat in the flex seating area and listened to the story before reading sight words on the Apple TV. For each actual sight word, the bunny (Mrs. Bright) would cheer and celebrate.
Each time they identified a nonsense word, the skunk (Mrs. Cogan) would lift her tail and spray her "skunk spray" to show that nonsense words stink.
"I guarantee you it is a reading lesson that students will remember for a long time," Cogan said.
Students excitedly read each word aloud to see if they were going to get a cheer from the bunny or a spritz from the skunk during the unique reading lesson.
