Redding reading: State ag secretary visits Kunkel

Posted

State Agriculture Secretary Russell Redding visited Kunkel Elementary School on Monday as part of  Pennsylvania Ag Literacy Week, which is celebrated March 18-22.

The week helps students learn about agriculture by introducing them to members of the agricultural community and by participating in classroom readings and interactive activities.

First- and second-grade students at four elementary schools across the midstate were picked.

Redding visited Lori D’Amour’s second-grade classroom to read the storybook “Right This Very Minute” by Lisl H. Detlefsen and Renee Kurilla. The story describes the connection between what we eat and where it comes from and explains that “right this very minute” there is a farmer in Pennsylvania working to make our food.

Following the story, students participated in an activity to identify the source of the foods they eat.

Redding donated the book to D’Amour’s classroom library.
