We had so much fun with our two mystery readers in the past two weeks! One of our readers read The Cat in the Hat by Dr. Seuss. The Cat in the Hat is a true classic about how a very funny cat and his friends, Thing 1 and Thing 2, who make a boring, rainy day an exciting adventure that most certainly will get the main characters in trouble with their mom when she comes home. To help us remember the story, our reader brought in magnetic book marks with Dr. Seuss characters on them. Our next reader read The Good for Nothing Button by Mo Willems. In this funny story, a yellow bird finds a button that does nothing, or so he thinks. But each time a friend presses the button, it makes them happy, which in turn, makes Yellow Bird angry. A funny debate ensues about whether the button is good for nothing or not! To help us remember the story, the kids each received a poppet with a "button" for each of them. The students truly loved both stories!!
Ms. Pam, our amazing cafeteria manager, holds a winter carnival each year with the help of many volunteers. A slideshow of the winter carnival fun is right below our mystery reader pictures. We are so lucky to have Ms. Pam!
