We ❤ Reading!

One of the reasons that I love first grade soooo much is that I get to see my students become readers. My team celebrates this each year with our I Love to Read Day Character Fashion Show. We started this tradition six years ago, and it continues to get bigger and better each year!

Prior to the big day, the kiddos write out character descriptions that will be read when they're walking across the stage and draw their characters for the bulletin board. They turned out so cute!


My team chose to dress up as characters from Kevin Henkes' books this year.

The day was SUPER busy, so I only got to snap a couple of pics of the kids in costume. 
(Hoping that parent volunteers got more pics!) 
Here we have The Giving Tree, Pecos Bill and Cindy Ellen.
