CHES Story Walk

Posted on 05/02/2024
During school library month, Chapel Hill Elementary students took part in a story walk, where they explored the world of literature with an interactive flare. Led by their teachers and media specialist, the young scholars were delighted to read Heather Henson’s ‘That Book Woman’ presented page by page along an adventurous walking trail.

As students strolled through the story walk, they were captivated by the inspiring tale with each new page and scene, drawing them deeper into the narrative and sparking their imagination.

CHES Media Specialist Cameron Sheldon emphasized the significance of the literacy program.

“Initiatives like the story walk featuring ‘That Book Woman’ exemplify the innovative spirit of school librarians and their dedication to fostering a lifelong love of learning and reading among students. It's an initiative that not only celebrates School Library Month but also leaves a lasting impression on young minds, inspiring them to discover the magic of books and storytelling.”

Overall, the literary adventure offers a refreshing break from traditional classroom settings, encouraging students to engage in a compelling story while connecting with nature.

“Beyond reading, the story walk provides a multi-sensory experience that appeals to different learning styles. Students can see the illustrations, hear the sounds of nature and imagine characters' voices in their minds, feel the texture of the outdoors as they walk, and even smell the fresh air. This holistic approach to storytelling makes the experience even more memorable and impactful,” said Sheldon.
