Local third-grade students performed a brief play re-enacting a moment in the life of Noah Webster at the Wednesday, Jan. 23, Lakeview Rotary meeting.

A group of third graders from Fremont Elementary School performed a short drama for members of the Lakeview Rotary Club last week.

Students in Deb Watts and Karman Lampman’s classes arrived at the local service club’s Wednesday, Jan. 23, meeting to re-enact a conversation between the father of the American dictionary, Noah Webster, and members of Congress.

The performance was inspired by the continued program in which the Rotary donates copies of The Best Dictionary for Kids as well as Stan Wonderley’s children’s book on the life of Noah Webster to third graders throughout the county.

The students’ performance centered around Noah Webster approaching Congress emphasizing a societal need for a dictionary.

Wondeley introduced the group, noting that the local Rotary club has been involved in the annual distribution since 2005.

“It’s been a real pleasure to represent this club and give out these two books to the kids,” he said. “Kids learn so much by owning books, and the more books they own, the more they will learn.”

Karman Lampman also noted that the students always enjoy Wonderley’s visits to the school each fall, particular how he interacts with the students on their level.

“The kids really have a good time when he comes (into the classroom),” she said. “As a parent, myself, we still use ours. They’re very easy to use, and the kids love all the extras in there. They’re very children friendly, and they really love them.”
