I just spent the day with the Wildcats at Winnetka Elementary in Dallas, Texas! Well, not all the Wildcats. I was there to give special presentations for all the students who met their reading goals for the school year. First, I talked to the 2nd graders, who each read 60 books, and the 3rd, 4th, and 5th graders, who each read 30 chapter books. I had a quick pizza party with all the students who read and voted for this year’s Texas Bluebonnet Award, their party had a DJ and everything! Then I finished the day presenting to Pre-K, Kinder, and 1st grade, many of whom reached their goal of 60 books!
Thanks to Mrs. Ruth Roman-Meza for inviting me and setting everything up. Great job! And thanks to Ms. Cox for my personal copy of the schools third writing publication—Color Poetry by 5C, 5D, & 5E. It’s a collection of poems full of similes, metaphors, alliteration, and onomatopoeia. My many hats off to the many authors! And an extra special thanks to all the Winnetka Wildcats. I totally agree with your motto: Readers are Leaders!
