REEDSVILLE — Prior to the end of the 2018-19 school year, students in grades 4-6 at Eastern Local took part in the annual Reading Fair.
Similar to a science fair, other the math fair which the school hosts earlier in the year, the students read their books and make a presentation (on tri-fold board) about the book they selected.
Students were from Mrs. Christi Lisle’s 4th grade, Mrs. Bobbi Harbour’s 5th grade, Mrs. Dezere Martin’s 6th grade, and Ms. Jessica Anderson’s language arts classes took part in the event.
Beginning in January, each student chose a fictional novel to read, analyze, and present. The project was a culmination of what students had learned throughout the school year and included story elements such as setting, theme, conflict, resolution, and plot as well as a summary of the story. Final projects were judged based on a combination of the presence of each grade level’s required story elements and individual interviews.
Students received gold, silver or bronze medals for their projects, based on the scores from interviews and the presence of the required elements for the project.
