Today I visited my very first school in North Carolina–Mineral Springs Elementary in Ellerbe, NC! My time with the Mineral Springs Bears was a great way to begin my NC tour. All the kids were excited, had great questions, made some of the more unusual animal noises during my song, and I even learned that their school colors are the same as my own school colors–purple and gold. How cool is that?
Between shows, I got to have lunch with some talented young readers and writers–two from each grade! I got to answer more questions, found out about their favorite stories, and watch Noah dip his chicken tenders into his sweet tea. Hey, we’re all different! Thanks for having lunch with me: Ashley, Diezel, Emma, Emoni, Jago, Mayra, Mia, Noah, Parker, Tanaja, and Tap!
Okay, you know there was a silly version…
Thanks to Mrs. Shepherd for inviting me to North Carolina and her wonderful school. Thanks to Ms. Fennell for helping with the sound equipment. Thanks to Neziyah for the my first NC fan letter (and cool hat drawing). And a big thanks to all Mineral Springs Bears for the warm welcome to your beautiful state!
