2nd grade has been hard at work preparing for our upcoming Christmas musical titled, "All I want For Christmas is an Arthur Book!" We are so excited to present this program 2 times on the 19th. Once at 9:00AM and again at 7:00PM. We hope you will be eager to join after you see a bit of our behind the scenes practice. All the students in 2nd grade have been coming together in my room this week to learn the songs. All of the songs are Christmas parodies I wrote about reading. In this clip, you will see a bit of our opening number. The kids will be frantically looking for all of their library books so they can earn their AR points. It promises to be a great show! Make plans now to attend!

This morning is one of those days where you just have to soak it all up and remember these little guys and gals are the reason we do what we do! The focus and intensity in this room right now is tangible, and the kids are SO excited to be reading for the Arthur's Reading Club. LOVE IT!!!

What a GREAT time we had last Tuesday as we presented our class play about Johnny Appleseed. We had 40 guests stuffed into our tiny classroom. It was the best way to start off our Thanksgiving holiday. I was so thankful for everyone braving the cold, rainy weather to support what we have been doing. Special thanks to Senator Reese, Senator Martin, and Representative Wood for attending also. We were very honored to have you see the incredible way that public education is making a difference in South Carolina! Below are pics from the event and a video of the play. Hope you enjoy!
