Students take a trip to Readerville

Jozelynn Noble, a first grader at Lewis and Clark Elementary, shows Kevin Duttenhefner her drawing of a unicorn mermaid during the school's Readersville event.

A casual observer could be excused from wondering what, exactly, Jedi training has to do with reading.

On Friday morning, as part of Lewis and Clark Elementary’s 26th annual Readerville conference, Codi Austreim and Mackenzie Blum were doing just that, though. They had their students — padawans in Jedi parlance — line up and one by one face off against the evil Kylo Ren.

As for the reading connection? Each of the more than 20 workshops, all of which had a Disney theme, were designed to combine reading with hands-on activities. Everyone who led a session — that included community members and teachers from other schools — was asked to include a book and an activity that would hold the students’ attention.
