My classroom is not a quiet, orderly place.
Students are constantly moving, thinking, talking, reading and writing.
I do my best to help my students find success.

Celebrate Reading / Celebrar la Lectura! #SOL16 17/31

It's the annual Slice of Life Story Challenge!
Read other slices, join our community of writers at
We did it!  A little idea of a reading night to celebrate reading turned into the real deal.

Many staff helped before, during and after the event to make it run smoothly.

Parents and kids had smiles as we punched holes in their "reading passports," keeping track of what rooms they visited.

Read alouds, book browsing rooms, Book Flix in the computer lab, create a bookmark and become an author.

73 families attended!

My feet are sore, my cheeks hurt from smiling, but I'm so very grateful to all my coworkers and students.

The celebration finishes tomorrow morning as I pull passports from each classroom and students win A FREE BOOK!



  1. Oh how I wish I could have been there! It sounds like an amazing night!

  2. ¡Qué celebración más fabulosa! So glad your reading night was such a success! I'd love to see photos!

  3. Kudos to you and your co-workers for creating such a wonderful event for students and their families. Great job!

  4. What a great idea! Sounds like a lot of fun :) Great job!
