March Is Reading Month + help me get some friends

This is what our building looks like. We have a terrific group of people who love to make our kids get excited about reading. Two of our educational assistants put in many after school hours making these wonderful creations.  Friday after school we asked some high school students to volunteer to help it come together. Thank goodness they need community service hours so they were very willing to help!!!!  We will leave this up for the entire month. The theme is Let Your Imagnination Fly! I'm sorry that this makes the page seem to go on forever, but I thought I could get the pictures to sit side by side. However they didn't want to cooperate!

Now, I have a freebie to give you, but not yet! I really want to get to 50 followers. So if you can spread the word about my blog, when I get 50 friends, I will post an activity for separating syllables, very similar to the one that is posted below. Except this one has words with 3 or more syllables. It's free for everyone. There's no random drawing, no first person to respond. Just get me some friends! Lonely ol' me wants to know more peeps! It would be great to reach 50 sometime this week. We'll see how fast this happens. Thanks a bunch and now, you can enjoy the photos!

  4. Love teh pictures! I am already a follower. I just posted about reading in March so I added your link to my post. I hope that helps bring followers to your site.

  5. I followed Christina's advice to come see your blog, and now I am following. Your school looks amazing. How many hours did they put in to make it look that good?

    1. I believe that two of our educational aides put in several hours after school for about a week or more. On Friday, all of us (we have a staff of about 12)stayed till after six. Plus we had high schoolers volunteer. We love decorating for this! So glad you like it!

  6. Your pics have migrated to pinterest, Patty! Imagine my surprise when I see a pin of OUR school!!!
