Eggs-citing Reading News!

We had so much fun hatching chicks last year that we decided to do it again!  And of course our chicks will need names.  So to decide who will win the honor of naming a chick we are having a reading contest.  The class that reads the most time between now and the day the chicks hatch (around May 1st) will win the honor of naming a chick and having a birthday party complete with ice cream and fun activities.  Reading at home and at shcool; reading alone or together all count.  To record your time just go to tinyurl.com/chicksread .  We are so eggs-cited about this eggs-traordinary event!!
