United Way of Central Iowa Day of Action

Wednesday, September 13th, 2017

The United Way of Central Iowa teamed up with Edmunds Elementary on September 12th as part of the 2017 United Way Day of Action. For one hour that morning community volunteers worked one-on-one with Edmunds 3rd graders, utilizing a literacy kit based on the book What Makes You Cough, Sneeze, Burp, Hiccup, Blink, Yawn, Sweat, and Shiver? by Jean Stangl. Each kit contained a book and step-by-step instructions for associated activities. The project was designed to reinforce the comprehension strategies learned in the classroom, while exploring common bodily actions. The 3rd Graders has an excellent time with their new United Way friends, as well as a fun time while they learned.  Thank you United Way of Central Iowa – the students love their new books!
