     Did you know that March 7th was World Read Aloud Day?  This is a new celebration to me, but my students sure loved the special visit from from super 5th grade readers!  The kids were extremely well-behaved as they sat and listened to their new friends read to them.  Young students always look up to older kids, so it's wonderful to have some good role models visit our classroom!

     It was pretty amazing to observe the 5th graders naturally checking for comprehension with their questions as they read!  A big thank you to Mrs. Carr for the idea!

We Love Amy!

     I am so grateful for my volunteer, Amy, who comes faithfully twice a week!  She is so wonderful with the kids!  When she arrives, she begins working 1:1 with each child on his or her poetry notebook.  They work on fluency as they practice each week's special poem.

Happy Birthday Dr. Seuss!

     Schools across America celebrate the birthday of Dr. Seuss on March 2nd.  At Pence, the entire building came to a halt and we all sat in the hall and read together.  What a wonderful way to share our love of reading!

“The more that you read, 
the more things you will know. 
The more that you learn, 
the more places you'll go.” -- Dr. Seuss
