Last Thursday my students put on the reading fair at our school. Participation was optional and we ended up with around 50 projects, which was great. Their enthusiasm was amazing and they were so proud of their story boards. I was pretty proud of them, too. I thought I would share a few of the projects that really caught my eye.
This was the winner in the 4th and 5th grade division. Tar Beach is one of my favorite children’s books, so I was so excited this student chose this book. She put in a lot of hard work and I think her story board is fabulous!
Crysanthemum is a story about a little mouse who doesn’t like her unusual name. While this board didn’t place, I still think it was wonderful.
ROSCOE RILEY RULES #2- NEVER SWIPE A BULLY’S BEAR
The detail and hard work put into this story board on Roscoe Riley Rules #2- Never Swipe A Bully’s Bear was very obvious, and this board placed second in the 2nd grade division. This division was a tough pick for the judges because there were so many beautiful story boards.
THE LITTLE MOUSE, THE READ RIPE STRAWBERRY, AND THE BIG HUNGRY BEAR:
The winner in the 2nd grade reading fair division was The Little Mouse, The Red Ripe Strawberry, and the Big Hungry Bear. Isn’t this amazing? This is a popular book in our library, so for the kids to get to see this was so much fun!
I could go on and on posting pictures of these reading fair projects, but I’ll stop. I’m just so proud of my students and hope these will provide a little inspiration should you find yourself having to do a reading fair project with your own children.
