|This is my principal and the Thunder player. I was surprised my principal was taller! I mean, I already knew he was tall but goodness! :)|
|This is one of the 4th graders who loves to read. He spends a ton of time in the library getting new books, talking about the books he is reading or wants to read. I have really liked getting to know him!|
The only part I don't love is that we are rewarding the kids who already love to read. The only ones who were invited to go on the bus were the ones who were top readers in 4th and 5th grade. These wonderful kids are going to keep reading whether there is a reward or not.
It's the ones who are reluctant readers who get to me. I want to reach them, and light a spark in them for reading. Hopefully I am doing that with some, even one!
Here is a link to see the video the Thunder created from the visit:
