We had special visitors come to McKinley today from Washington, D.C. They brought books for every child in our school. The mayor of our town came and read a book to our whole school.
Each child received 2 free books. We also got healthy snacks and water and went back to our rooms for a reading party. We were so excited to get books of our own to keep!
These are the books our class received to keep. The mayor read 2 stories from "Days with Frog and Toad."
We came back to our room to read and eat snacks and talk about our new books!

Mrs. S came into our class and shared her favorite book with us today. We really enjoyed the story and her visit. During the story we even heard our new vocabulary word, fiasco. It was nice to hear the word and know we had just learned that word today!
After her visit Mrs. S sent us a letter. We hope she comes back again and reads us another book. Thank you Mrs. S!
