Manlius Library (summer 2011)
One World, Many Stories
New York State Libraries chose the theme “One World, Many Stories” for the 2011 summer reading program. The third grade students at Enders Road applied their knowledge of countries and geographic regions that they learned in their socials studies classes this year to the seven murals they designed and painted to go along with the summer reading program’s theme. The students carefully sketched out ideas that were transferred to large mural paper. Once the images were drawn on the large pieces of mural paper the students used bright colors of tempera paint to paint them. The murals were hung in the Children’s Section of the Manlius Library over the summer and into the beginning of the fall.
