This session is for teachers who are participating in the Virginia Reads One Book program which begins March 1, 2019.  Participating elementary schools, their staff, and each of its students will be given a copy of this year’s book, Cleo Edison Oliver (C.E.O.), Playground Millionaire, by Sundee T. Frazier. This is the story about an ambitious 5th-grade entrepreneur who starts a tooth-pulling business for a cut of her classmates’ the Tooth Fairy money! The story can be enjoyed by kindergartners, while also captivating older students.

In this session, teachers will experience some of the economic and financial activities and lessons associated with Cleo Edison Oliver book. Pizza will be provided.

Virginia Reads One Book is provided by Read to Them, a nonprofit whose mission is to create a culture of literacy in every home. VCEE is partnering with them on this program.
