Once each fall and once each spring, PCA holds a very special night called Recitation. At Recitation, the students have a chance to present many of the poems, songs, chants and jingles they have learned over the past semester to a room full of family, friends, and those interested in learning more about the school. Our spring Recitation night was May 2.
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!
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.
