Today we had our book swap.  All of the kids brought in a book and got a new book.  

Everyone in the school is reading so that we can get 100,000 minutes.  If we reach our goal, Mrs. Cuthbert will do Gangnam Style with Mrs. Moar.  Yesterday we had 85,000 minutes.  So we have 15,000 more to go.  Do you think we'll make it???

RCMP Guest Readers

written by Harris, Madison and Emily

The kids at SSES were lucky to have three of our Gimli RCMP officers come to read with us for I Love to Read month.  Constable Frederick read "Night on the Prairie Sky" about a boy who had a horse.  He was looking for his brother who was catching frogs in the marsh.  The boy was wearing an RCMP's red serge.  The prairie sky looked like a storm was coming.  The boys got back just before the storm started.  Once the storm started, the boy was brushing his horse's hair in the barn.
Sergeant Gray read "Monkeys in the Kitchen."  The kids thought it was a pretty funny book!  The monkeys were making a disaster in the kitchen.  Once the kid got all of the monkeys out of the house, an elephant knocked at the door.  And then he realized there was probably several hundred more!
Constable Spakowski read "I'll Teach you 100 Words" by Dr. Seuss to the younger students.  He read the older kids an adventure book about two boys.  He also has two boys.  He told us how important it is to read!  We were able to ask him questions about being a police officer.

Thank you to Constable Frederick, Sergeant Gray and Constable Spakowski for reading to the kids at SSES!

Yesterday we read with the whole school.  We all met in the gym for a BIG Buddy Read!  Each kid had a partner from a different class.  We each had 3 or 4 books.  It was noisy with all of that reading!  We liked reading with our reading buddy.  It was neat seeing everyone read at the same time!

Today is Flashlight Friday!  We all brought flashlights to read in the dark.  Some classes are doing flashlight writing and even flashlight Math.  We liked writing with our flashlights ~ it was relaxing.  It was fun and awesome.  There are three more Flashlight Fridays in February.  We can't wait until the next one!
