Week 26 Letter Qq, short i, star words 'here' and 'is', DR. SEUSS!!!

Wow! What a FANTASTIC WEEK!
We began our Read-Across-America Week with Green Eggs and Ham created by my teenagers!
It is kind of a family tradition. Plus they get the extras!
 (p.s. Not real eggs: Pretzels, white chocolate, and m&ms)

We enjoyed 2 guest readers on Monday,

 Kristin, Kayden's mom and Annette. 
Both work at the High School.
Thank you, Ladies!
(stay tuned for our special Friday guest reader toward the end of this blog...)

Monday was also the day kids brought in their 
POTATO Storybook Character for the contest in the library!
 These were AWESOME!


We created our own version of Dr. Seuss's Cat in the Hat hat's and bow ties!












We also created a Cat in the Hat for the hallway using shapes....cute fun!
