For the month of March first-sixth graders participated in a reading contest. The contest requirements were different for each class some were my most pages read and others by most minutes read. A winner was picked from each class to participate in the Reading Shooting Contest. Each winner was shooting baskets for money. There were 5 spots to shoot a basket from. Each winner could shoot all of the baskets or pick others to help them. The most they could make was $8 and there were some who got $8. What a fun reading contest!
A little over a month ago, Mrs.Gadberry's fifth graders wrote opinion essays on which restaurant they thought was the best. They then sent the letters to the respective restaurants and there have been some really fun responses. Both HuHot and Golden Corral came to class to let all of the kids have some samples! Chuck-A-Rama sent one of the students a couple of meal passes and the rest of the class got multi-colored pens that they now use on most assignments. :)
