Harlan recently participated in a class reading fair. This was a student project that gave students the opportunity to "express their favorite book through a storyboard display. Adhering to the rigorous common core standards, the students determined the theme of their book as well as identified characters, settings, plot, bibliographic information, and com- pleted a summary. As a result of this project, Mrs. Moore believes that students will gain a deeper enjoy- ment and lifelong love for reading. The students were extremely excited about this project and their hard work was shown as they presented their display to the class. Sixth grade teachers, Ms. Rogers and Mrs. McNeill served as judges.
