In celebration of the great work the students did in March with our Stories for Scholarships fundraiser, PCA recently had Literary Character Day. It was a fun day at PCA!
Recently our 2nd and 3rd grade class presented their last book reports of the year. As usual, it was fun to hear all the stories our students have been reading and obviously enjoying. Great job, 2nd and 3rd grade class!
This week I visited Mrs. Reed’s kindergarten class and watched as the students presented their first ever book reports. They were called Shoebox Book Reports. During the reports, each student stood in front of the class and presented their book. They then proceeded to read their book report form and show the class the three items in their shoebox, explaining how each had to do with their book. The students all did very well!
One of my favorite things about being a mom in Central Arkansas is the library system. We have a great network of libraries! In this post, I want to show you how I’ve learned to make the most of my library visits; choosing books for my family thoughtfully and carefully while keeping my library visits brief and enjoyable.
Throughout the month of March, the students at Pinnacle Classical Academy had an opportunity to participate in a creative fundraiser called Stories for Scholarships. It was like a walk-a-thon, except instead of walking, the students read books that were appropriate for their particular reading level and collected pledges for the number of books he or she read in the month of March. The end result will be a party for all the students who participated, and all the money will go toward scholarships for next year.
I recently had the honor of visiting the 2nd and 3rd grade class on the day they presenting their book reports. The students were each asked to choose from a selection of books, each one detailing the story of a famous person from history. After reading the book, they were asked to prepare some notes, find a costume and dress up as that famous person as they presented their life story to the class.
Monday was a big day in Miss Claxton’s class. The 2nd and 3rd graders had been working on their big book reports for three weeks, choosing just the right book, reading it at home, writing out a report in their neatest handwriting, and creating a poster board visual to display during their presentation of the book.
His desk was neatly stacked with Latin curriculum, a logic textbook, grammar books, and many other things you would expect to see on a teacher’s desk. But front and center, in the middle, obviously there from recent use, was his Bible. It was a wonderful thing to see!
