1st Grade Pumpkin Book Reports

First grade students at Piedmont enjoyed sharing their creative pumpkins that were made to look like the main character of their book report. They took turns giving oral book reports on their book.  Pete the Cat, Junie B. Jones and Clifford were all on display in first grade today.  The students were proud to share their creations and excited to hear about their fellow student’s stories.  Pig the Pug created quite a disturbance as students shared how he was a really mean dog.  Perhaps you can pick up a copy at our book fair October 16th to 18th.
