A boy, a book, a bag


PERCY JACKSON AND THE LIGHTNING THIEF
A 3rd GRADE PRESENTATION BY DANE REYNOLDS

Dane had a month to choose and read an Adventure or Mystery novel, write up a Summary/Setting/Character/Opinion report, and put together a bag of representative items. He spent the last four days dialing in the report and bag - and here's what he finally came up with for his project.

Update: Dane presented this to his class today and totally rocked it. He blew his teacher away and earned an A+!

Dane, GREAT JOB!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

You gave an excellent presentation. Your items from the bag (especially the half-blood jar) were perfect! I like that you didn't tell the ending...

I really enjoyed watching the video and was very impressed that you could refer to your notes and then look up at your audience. You were so relaxed and fielded and answered the questions well.

Congratulations on your FABULOUS grade!!! Your hard work and preparation psid off.

Love,
Mema

Hi Dane -
That was an AWESOME presentation-practice-run video! And congratulations on doing so well in class and getting the BEST grade you can get! The things you chose for your bag were fantastic and you made such good use of them during your report.

I have to say you have inspired me to read that book! It sounds just like the kind of story I really love.

I'm totally proud of you pal! Great JOB!

Love ya bunches,
Karen

Dane, after reading your Oral Book Report I just loved the way you spelled bo - lightning bolt - t, not just a normal bolt. That was extremely clever!!!
You really put your ALL into your school projects. I'm thinking of your historical George Washington puppet project. What a winner!!! And now "The Lightning Thief" report. Your hard work planning and then practicing, practicing, practicing = REALLY PAID OFF - YOU DEFINITELY EARNED YOUR A+.
You are developing work ethics that will be used by you the rest of your life.
Go, Dane, Go!!!
Lovingly,
