The Book Fairy

My ECDC friends were GREAT!!

Posted on November 13, 2013 at 6:00 AM

I had such an amazing time yesterday at your Book Fair and reading event!!  Weren't there so many great books?  I really enjoyed getting to know you.  I had so much fun reading with you, and getting pictures with you.  And weren't the crafts really cool?  You are so creative, you did a great job.  

Never forget that we are working on getting super strong, super fast monster truck brains.  I want each of you to be super smart, so keep on reading with mom, and dad, and your brothers, and sisters, and cousins, and your teacher, and your librarian and ANYONE else who will read to you.  You can never read too much.  (Then you can play a game and see who remembers all the parts of the story the best!)

I enjoyed coming to your school and getting to meet each of you.

Happy Reading!

I wanted to say Hi to you.  I'm so excited because I am going to be visiting your Book Fair on November 13 (that's a Wednesday).  I can't wait to meet each of you.  I hope you will come.  We are going to read some great books together,  and then do some fun crafts.  Plus, if you want, you can get a picture with me! AAAANNND, I'll be giving everyone there some of my magic!!

All the fun will start at 4:00 after school, and you don't want to miss any of it.  The Book Fair will have lots of amazing books and other cool stuff that you can buy to take home with you.  I just love Book Fairs, don't you?  They are almost as fun as the library, and there are so many BRAND NEW books to read!

I'll see you soon.  I can hardly wait!

Happy Reading!


Happy Birthday, Bethany!!

Posted on February 13, 2013 at 12:40 PM

I had so much fun this morning!  I had the pleasure of visiting the classroom of an amazing girl who turned 7 years old today.  I got to be a visiting reader to her class and we had a great time.  We read George Washington's Birthday, A Mostly True Tale by Margaret McNamara and illustrated by Barry Blitt.  It is about George turning 7 years old and what his day might have been like.  It is really funny!

 

 

 


We also read Dr. Zeuss fun book Happy Birthday to You!  He has created another crazy world that reminds you that "You are You"!!  And it helps your imagination take off and create your best birthday ever!

 

 


So, Happy Birthday to Bethany!!

Happy Reading Everyone!!

Hello Rhodes Kinders and First Graders!

Posted on March 9, 2012 at 6:05 PM

Hello to all my new friends at Rhodes Elemetary school. I had a great time with all the Kinder and First Grade Students. I hope you keep your promise to be good readers. Now you have some of my magic, so there are no excuses!

I hope you liked the books we read in Kindergarten: "Bubble Gum, Bubble Gum" by Lisa Wheeler and "I Love You Stinky Face" by Lisa McCourt. They are both really fun books, and you did a great job helping me read both of them. Make sure you don't step in any gum, you never know what might happen!

First Graders read "I Love You Stinky Face" by Lisa McCourt and "Fox in Socks" by Dr. Seuss.  You are awesome at tongue twisters. 

I hope you have a fun Spring Break. Remember, no potato brains!! I want you to work on your super fast, super strong monster truck brain, so you are ready for the last few weeks of school.

Happy Reading!

Vogel Elementary ROCKS!!

Hey guys, as promised I'm writing about the great day we had today at your school.  Thanks so much for being great listeners. 

Kinder through 2nd graders really like Bubble Gum!!  I hope you don't have a terrible, horrible, no good very bad day for the rest of the school year. (Bubble Gum, Bubble Gum by Lisa Wheeler and Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day by Judith Viorst were the books we read.)

3rd through 5th was so tired from their field day, I thought they would go to sleep on me!  :D But they didn't.  We had a lot of fun doing tongue twisters from Dr. Seuss' Fox in Socks, and reading "The True Story of the 3 Little Pigs" by A. Wolf (Jon Scieszka).

Remember to work on getting a super strong, super fast monster truck brain over the summer.  NO POTATO BRAINS!!!!

See you next year and happy reading.

Snowball Fight at Coronado Village Elementary?

Posted on January 14, 2011 at 2:29 PM

Hello to all my new friends at Coronado Elementary in Judson ISD!  I had a great time with all of you amazing AR readers.  I am really proud of all your hard work.  Keep it up, you need to have that super fast brain working for you!

 

I am very sure that you are the reason the San Antonio area has been having all this cold weather this week :D   I think Mother Nature also with Old Man Winter was trying their hardest to have real snow for your snowball fight!  I don't think the clouds were cooperating.    But if there is not real snow, I guess a paper snow ball fight is the next best thing.

 

I'm so glad I got to meet all of you and I'll be watching to see if you use the magic I've given you.  Thank you for the invitation to your Royal Reading Party, it was wonderful.

 

Happy Reading!

Elm Creek Reading Night

Posted on November 28, 2010 at 3:00 PM

Well, I owe another apology to my friends at Elm Creek Elementary School. I told you I would write about all the fun we had at your Reading Night, then I had computer problems.  Anyway, I finally got things fixed and was able to write about all the fun we had on November 16 at your school. 


I couldn't believe how many families came out for our reading event!  You had such a big crowd.  It made it very exciting.  I could tell you were having fun, because you had a lot to say.  I thought you did a wonderful job with the tongue exercises and tongue twiters with "Bubble Gum, Bubble Gum" by Lisa Wheeler.  But you made a mean sounding Wolf in "The True Story of the Three Little Pigs" by Jon Scieska. 


I hope you had as much fun as I did.  I thought it was great that your school gave out books and even had games for you to play too.


I hope you keep up all the good work with your reading.  You promised!!


By the way, I found out some really special kids were sick that night (I think they are related to the Principal somehow?)  I sprinkled lots of magic all over your school, so you'll have lots of good books to read.  Maybe we can meet in person sometime. 


Happy Reading!

Sinclair Elementary Friday Night Fun!

Posted on October 25, 2010 at 8:00 AM

Wow,  I had such a great time on Friday, October 22 at your school.  I heard we had about 175 moms, dads, and kids there to have fun at the Early Childhood Literacy Night.  What could be funner than talking about reading, reading books, eating delicious cookies and lemonade?  PLUS, every single family  taking a free book home!!  :D


I wanted to list which books we read, in case you wanted to check them out of your library and read them again.  (I never get tired of reading good books.)  Here they are:


"The Amazing Pig" by Paul Galdone

"Alice the Fairy" by David Shannon

"Princess Pigsty" by Cornelia Funke, illustrated by Kerstin Meyer

and "The LIttle Red Hen" from "Eight Favorite Fairy Tales" by Lucy Cousins


You guys did a great job of talking like a king, and making the animal sounds, and just being great listeners! 


I hope you keep up all your hard work.  I would love to hear from you, so write me if you get a chance! 


Happy Reading!
