Winchester students take story time lying down

November 23, 1992

When it comes to story time, a soft cushion makes a better setting than a wooden desk.

Students at William Winchester Elementary School brought in sleeping bags, pillows and even furniture cushions to spread out on in the media center during Children's Book Week last week.

"I told them we were having story time on the floor this week," said Jacqueline Callis, media specialist.

First-graders listened to "Hanna's Hog," by Jim Aylesworth. Second-graders chimed in with "Imagine!" at appropriate times during the reading of "Sometimes It's Turkey, Sometimes It's Feathers" by Lorna Balian, Ms. Callis said.

Third-graders saw a filmstrip version of "Henry and the Clubhouse" by Beverly Cleary, and fourth-graders heard selections from "Shiloh" by Phyllis Reynolds Naylor. Fifth-grade classes listened to a few chapters of "Maniac Magee" by Jerry Spinnelli.
