Soooo... Reading Witches by Roald Dahl... and up pops a Mouse???
Another average, ordinary day in second grade during read aloud... only today... we spotted a mouse while reading Witches, by Roald Dahl. Now, I'm not sure if your familiar with this amazing story by one of our most revered authors, but when you get to the part in the story where the grand high witch is turning into a mouse, herself... and, to your SURPRISE, you spot a little teeny weeny field mouse in your classroom... you're thinkin', Roald Dahl couldn't have planned this any better!! Unbelievable!! A little bit of unexpected drama, though NO WORRIES... every single second grader kept a close eye on that (lost, confused,adorable) little bugger until David Grace came in and saved the day. Mouse, caught. Mouse, released. Mouse fine. Reading witches in second grade, today... magic!! Cool!
Tomorrow... walking field trip to pick strawberries...sneakers and sunblock please!
Afternoon (hoping we're not exhausted...), Authors share at 1:30. See you there!
