Reading Fair Guidelines

Reading Fair Board Due Date: September 23rd, 2016

School Reading Fair: September 30th, 2016

Participants: Mandatory for grades 2-5; optional for Pre-K, Kdg. & 1
The Reading Fair provides students with the opportunity to share their favorite fiction book through a storyboard display. Students in 3rd - 5th grades have the option of sharing a favorite fiction or non-fiction book. The storyboards will be judged in three different categories: Individual, Family and Group. Students will be expected to present their boards to the judges this year. Please work with your child to make sure they know their book well enough to answer questions. The first place winners from our school will advance to the District Reading Fair.
Please keep the following regulations in mind as your child completes his/her project:

  • Storyboards should be constructed on a standard tri-fold project board that unfolds to be 36” x 48” W. The board should not exceed 36” H x 48” W.
  • Storyboards should be colorful and interesting. Models, shadowboxes, and illustrations that fit in the middle of the display are allowed. Items used for the project are not to be alive, valuable or dangerous. Electrical cords may not be used.

  • The student’s name, grade, category and division, and teacher’s name should be labeled on the back of the board. If this identifying information is on the front, the project will be disqualified. There is a form included that you may attach to the back of your board.

  • The book chosen should be a fictional (made up) story, unless it is to be placed in the 3rd, 4th or 5th grade non-fictional category.

  • Items on the board may be handwritten or computer printed. Younger students may require assistance with writing, typing, spelling, cutting, etc. However, if a student of any age has extensive assistance, please enter the project in the family category.

  • Each Fiction (made up story) or Non-fiction (real things) storyboard must include the following story elements:
