Rocky Point School District students in grades K-5 helped to ensure that children in need had a warm holiday by collecting 150 pajamas for the Pajama Program, an initiative organized through Scholastic’s Great Bedtime Story Pajama Drive.

Recognizing that Scholastic matches the donation of pajamas with a book, the fourth-grade students in Kristie Jackson’s, Deborah Vieira’s and Lisa Celentano’s classes wanted to add a special touch to their donations. Students from these classes created their own collection of fairy tales to add to the donation.  

The students researched fairy tales and the structure of the written pieces before proceeding through the writing process to develop their own fractured fairy tales. The completed stories were bound together to give each recipient a copy of the students’ Fairy Tales Collection.
