We are pleased to announce that we are preparing for our Third Annual Reading Fair at Penn Elementary. This Reading Fair will have students selecting a great fiction book of their choice and interacting with it in an exciting way. The students will be making a tri-fold or poster display highlighting the important elements of books, applying what they have been learning in school. Our goal is the energize readers and share great books with others. A week’s activities culminate on
Thursday evening (6:30-8:00), April 27th with the Reading Fair Book presentations being displayed for viewing by families during the Penn Book Fair.
We ask that students do their best work! An adult can assist but this should be their project. Please help the student pace themselves to meet the due date. Examples of student projects can be found at the Penn Elementary web site. Teachers will be sharing examples and further information with their classes.
Thank you for your support of reading and the teachers and staff at Penn Elementary.
