Camp Read-a-lot at Bataan Primary

During the week of June 3 – 6, Bataan Memorial Primary School was transformed into Camp Read-a-lot for students to do “S’More” reading. Students met by the Bataan flagpole each morning for reveille, raising of the flag, roll call, daily joke and the “Golden Dust Pan” award for the cleanest “cabin” (classroom). Teachers were the camp counselors, dressing the part each day and leading the camp themed activities. 

As part of Camp Read-a-lot, various parts of the school were renamed for the week. The bathrooms were latrines, the nurse’s office was the first aid station, and the office was headquarters. Classroom lessons that centered around camping took place and the reading teachers had fun reading sessions. Reading sessions such as reading by flashlight, outdoor games or crafts and camper reading (a camper was parked in back of the school for the week).


The Reading Teachers at Bataan Memorial Primary, Nancy Wargo, Julie Dunham, and Tara Nilson, coordinated Camp Read-a-lot for students to do “S’More” reading the last week of school.

Families of students participated by completing activities at home as part of their Family Reading Contract. Families logged activities such as a family hike, checking the newspaper for the weather report, creating a collage of items found in nature, cuddling up and read a good book, or doing a good deed for a family member or neighbor.  Reading teachers Tara Nilson, Julie Dunham and Nancy Wargo coordinated the event. More pictures can be found on the school district website www.pccsd.net or the Port Clinton City School District Facebook page.
