Today was the day – the day that all the students have been anxiously awaiting since October 18th – the day of the teacher tricycle race. In honor of our Scholastic book fair, I challenged the kids to read 700 books in a month. They read 700 books in 17 days! Today at 11:30, the students assembled on the sidewalk to watch the showdown. Katrien “Kat. A. Strophe” Vance, Michael “The Dominator” Donegan, Jessie “Gates-Smasher” Hudson, Jess “Four Leaf Cleaver” Tucker, Krista “Betty ClockHer” Crocker and Oscar “El Rey Triciclo” Cardenas took the challenge seriously and showed up in assorted costumes.
And they were off! Natasha’s second grade class marked the finish line with a giant sheet of paper – the winner got to smash through it. (This is not the best video I’ve ever taken, but it gets pretty funny at the end).
