Last Friday, February 4, 2011, the pre-kindergarten and kindergarten classes in my son’s school had their reading recital entitled “Mother Goose on the Loose! at AIC Gold Tower Penthouse Level. My husband and I missed our morning work to make it to this important event.
The pre-kindergartners were given their reading piece around the middle of January, so they had a few weeks to study it. My son’s reading piece was the nursery rhyme “If All the Seas Were One Sea.” It didn’t him long to master his piece; one of his teachers even told me twice before the recital that Justin is a good reader.
The pre-kindergartners had their reading recital in the morning and the kindergartners in the afternoon. The kids also prepared production numbers before and after their reading recital. The pre-kindergartners’ opening number was the song “You Are My Sunshine.” Here’s a video of that performance.
Then, the reading recital began. My son was the second pre-kindergartner to read. Here he is reading his piece.
The pre-kindergartners’ closing number was a medley. We have a video of their performance, too, but the file is too large to upload. And before going home, we had our family picture taken at the stage!
Because he did well in his reading recital, I’m thinking of buying my son an Elmo bath towel for kids, just a little reward for a job well done.
