We had so much fun celebrating reading last week. Our students love it when teachers join in on the fun also. Throughout the day Mrs. Yates transformed just like the tree in the classic story "The Giving Tree" by Shel Siverstein. If you have not read this story as a family, you should. It has so many life lessons to share.
