Holiday Community Read
This morning was no regular community read morning. Most Wednesday and Thursday mornings Ms. Lirenman invites all our parents to stay when the bell rings and read with us. But today was different. Today Ms. Lirenman opened her doors early and invited the parents to stay longer. She also provided snacks which included coffee (generously donated by Starbucks), juice, chocolate milk, bananas, oranges, strawberries, and Tim Bits from Tim Hortons. In the end most of our parents stayed for almost an hour, which is a lot longer than was planned. But they couldn't help it. We were all having too much fun enjoying great books, great food, and great company. We were even lucky enough to have Dr. Elisa Carlson, Director of Instruction come from the school board office. We know she's a really important lady because she had a lot to do with us getting our class iPad. She even brought along her iPad and she let us read on it too. Dr. Carlson had a really cool app called The Fantastic Flying Books of Mr. Morris Lessmore where things moved on every page. Needless to say we had a really great community read today. Our parents even asked if we could do it again every month. Ms. Lirenman wasn't so sure about that. Here is a little video of our special community read morning.
