    Castle theme
    By Sue W.

    I used a "Royal Reader" idea in second grade, but it could work for other grade levels. We had a big wooden chair that I decorated as a throne, placed in front of a bulletin board with a large castle. Each child had the opportunity of being the "Royal Reader". They each selected a story or book to read to the class, and then pracitced it at home. On their "OWN" day they sat on the throne with a golded crown (made of shiny bulletin board edging) and read to the class, as well as invited guests of their choice; their parents, brothers, sisters or cousins in our school, the principal or librarian, one child invited his day-care provider who brought his little pre-school friends. It worked very well. I did check them out before the big day to help with their choice of selection and to see that they could do a good job. One of the greatest successes was a inclusion student. His mom helped him choose wisely and practiced with him. The other kids were very impressed and clapped for him when he finished. He was so proud! I'm betting he remembers it to this day, I certainly do!
