Read Across America Week at the Lake!

The book fair is all set and ready for little children....it almost looks too good to touch! Reminds me of the night before Christmas...don't we have the BEST parent volunteers? Boy, they sure did a great job getting everything set up and it looks soooo pretty! 


Today was Book Character Day....I took my 3rd grade reading group downstairs to the 1st grade wing today for some reading enjoyment as the 1st grade team traded kids around to read them their books and show off their book characters...


First, we went to Ms. Staib's room and listened to...if you give a cat a cupcake....

Here's the Cat and her Cupcake...

Here's the Dog and his Donut...

The Moose and her Muffin....

And the Mouse and her Cookie....
Well done, first grade, another grand slam after being Colorful Cats last year!


Mrs. Pittman, our wonderful librarian always does an amazing job at creating something creative and competitive for the week....in the year's past, we've done Read Across America Minutes, Iditaread, and this year, Jim, our principal is Team Go, Dog, Go and Tina, our assistant principal is Team Cat in the Hat....kids pledge their minutes of reading each day to either Team Go Dog Go OR Team Cat in the Hat...mmmm, Jim and Tina aren't very competitive (wink, wink)...I wonder who's going to win....(not to mention all the heavy campaigning that's going on around here....more to come tomorrow!

Happy Reading! -Jen
