Fourth-graders enrolled in Karen Pitka’s class at Duffield Elementary School recently displayed both their acting capabilities and superior reading skills during the class’ “Reader’s Theater Publishing and Performance Presentation.”

During each of the performances, students assumed the role of popular story book characters and acted out humorous scenarios for the family, school staff and administrators in attendance. The skits performed during the afternoon included “Three Little Elephants,” “Three Elves & Young Stu Baker,” “Little Late Riding Hood,” “Claynocchio,” “Cheetah and the Sloth” and “Popsicle Boy.”

At the conclusion of the wonderful performances, the students invited their family members back to their desks where they were able to share their published writing portfolio, which included original pieces of poetry along with Units of Study writing pieces.
