Rotary donates reading materials

ELLSWORTH — The Ellsworth Noontime Rotary has supplied a reading program and books to the Ellsworth School Department that provide a storytime experience that incorporates grade-level literacy skills and good citizen behavior.

Using the Teacher’s Lesson Plan, the program introduces new vocabulary and understanding of the story of Andy and Elmer in their business venture of baking apple dumplings. The students learn the value of truthfulness, fairness, goodwill and partnerships that benefit everyone involved. Additional activities are encouraged with Andy and Elmer’s Bingo and a recipe for baking apple dumplings. Students are motivated to read the story with their family at home and bake delicious dumplings.
