CAPE GAZETTE, Friday, March 11 - March 14, 2005 - 109 Read Continued from page 108 kled with questions to the children to involve them in the story and help them understand hard vocab- ulary words. "When I was growing up, I ab- solutely loved having someone read aloud to me," Windsor said. "I think it's one of the most im- portant things we can do with our children." Later, the Secretary of State vis- ited W. B. Simpson Elementary School in Camden, where she read a colorfully illustrated pic- ture book, "This Land is Your Land," to second graders in Kristina Gundersen's class. "Oh, I know that - I know that song," one student exclaimed, recognizing the words to the famous Woody Guthrie anthem. After the reading, the class donned oversized, handmade red- and-white-striped stovepipe hats worn by the iconic main character in "The Cat in the Hat" and then sent up a rousing birthday greet- ing to its creator. Karl Chalabala photo Rehoboth's Madeline Meade gets warm reception for poem Rehoboth Elementary School student Madeline Meade received a warm round of applause in the Delaware Technical and Community College Theater on Feb. 28. Her poem, "The Apple in the Sky," was selected by the Child's Play Touring Theater as one of the best submissions they received in their annual contest, which was sponsored by Children and Families First. The Child's Play performers turned Meade's short poem into a beat performance styled af- ter the performances of Allen Ginsberg and William Burroughs, complete with finger snaps. Every elementary and middle school in Delaware, as well as many in Pennsylvania, Mary- land, and places as far away as Texas compete in the program. Meade's poem was the only se- lection by a local student performed by the Child's Play company. Students from H.O.Brittingham, Shields and Rehoboth Elementary attended the perform- ance. Many of the performances centered on fears and dislikes of schoolchildren, such as chores and homework. A trio of poems by second-graders, "Oh no, I've turned into a tomato" is one example that showcased the children's creative side. This is the 11th year Children and Families First sponsored the Child's Play performances in Delaware. Shown is Meade, right, receiving her award from Child's Play performer Rob Allen. o(aw: Rehoboth rdemevTy, School 0m  m) Class meets twice a week on tAoays  Wedmays 325 ixm. *Ttease torte this class is offered with a ope. door potky. 1here ave   fees ov tmm. | i Experience Summer at the YMCA Specialty, sports & traditional camps Camps designed for preschoolers - teens Full Day Hours 7am- 6pm Recreational swim and Field trips ,- Emphasis of YMCA's 4 character values of Caring, Honesty, Respect and Responsibility Financial assistance available REGISTRATION KICKOFF MARCH 14 MEET CAMP STAFF REGISTER YOUR CHILD EARLY GIVEAWAYS CAMP CRAFTS ENJOY REFRESHMENTS SUSSEX FAMILY YMCA Rehoboth Beach (302) 296.YMCA
