THESPIAN POINT OPPORTUNITY From Hickory Elementary in Torrance:
The Hickory Elementary book fair is the night of November 2nd, from 5:30 to 8:30. The storytelling event will be in the cafeteria at the same time. We are looking for High School drama students who are great at reading with expression to read to the kids while they sit in their pajamas and enjoy the great books! The theme of the evening is Enchanted Evening, so readers are welcome to choose books that fit with the theme, but I would prefer for them to choose books that were their favorites as children because they will enjoy it more. And if they're having fun, our kids will have fun, too!
Students may read on the stage, on the floor in front of the stage, or they may move about the room while they read, if space permits. We have one microphone, so I recommend that students read individually rather than working together in groups. but if they have other more creative ideas, I am open to them!
We don't know exactly how many readers we have right now, so it is hard for me to assign times, but if you have students who would prefer a specific one hour block, please let me know and I will do my best to make that happen.
How long students read and how many books we would like them to read all depends on how many students we get for the event. If we only get 6, we would love for each student to read for approximately 30 minutes, but we will greatly appreciate any volunteer time the students can give.
Thank you so much! I think this will be a really fun and memorable evening for your students as well as ours!
