Although the highlight of the annual Celebration of Books is always Character Day when we get to dress up as out favourite storybook characters, we also had a lot of fun celebrating earlier in the week as well.
This year, classes also took part performing, short Readers’ Theatre performances. The Preschool students did an excellent job of bringing Michael Rosen’s story, “This is Our House” to life for the Early Years students. As we donated one of the homes built during our Homes Unit to Early Years this was a great story to remind all of the students about the importance of sharing and to not be selfish.
The Preschool class was also treated to a special Readers’ Theater performance by the second grade students who not only worked hard to read and perform their story, but to make their own great costumes as well!
