I had a great time at ECDC!!

Posted on March 6, 2012 at 11:20 PM

I just wanted to say thanks for my invitation to the first ever ECDC LIteracy Night.  I had a wonderful time meeting all the students, their parents, their brothers and sisters AND all the wonderful teachers who helped with the event.  I hope you liked, "I Love You, Stinky Face" by Lisa McCort, it is one of my favorite books.  You did a great job helping me read the book.  

All the centers were really great.  Which was your favorite?  Environmental Print, Story Sequencing, Math and Literacy, Story Boxes, or Rhyming?  They were all great.  I loved "The Very Hungry Catepillar" and "Brown Bear, Brown Bear, What do you see?" and all those silly Duck books.  Plus you were so creative with your stories (didn't you love the animals that made sounds when you pressed them?), and all the other fun activities.  

Thanks so much for inviting me!  I hope to come back and visit again.  Be good readers and make sure you don't get a potato brain!

Happy Reading!

Briscoe Academy Rocks!!

Posted on February 16, 2012 at 8:30 AM

THANKS to all the amazing kids and teachers I met at Briscoe Academy!  I hope you had as much fun as I did at your Family Literacy Night.  You really do have a lot of great readers, some of you are just starting out, but remember what I said, you're reading can only get better-that's what is so magical about reading.  Everyone I met should have some of my magic now, so there are no excuses for not reading!!  

Make sure you thank your wonderful Librarian, Ms. Rodriguez and your teachers for such a fun time.  I didn't know school was supposed to be fun.  You  guys are soooo lucky!!

Don't forget, I'll be around from time to time to check up on your reading, so keep up the good work.

Happy Reading!

Briscoe Academy Family Literacy Night!!

Posted on February 8, 2012 at 8:00 AM

Wow, I am sooooo excited about getting to visit Briscoe Academy on February 15 :lol:.  They have the most awesome Family Literacy Night planned and I've been invited to attend!  I can't wait to meet all of you there!!  

I found out there will be an incredible Book Fair, plus the teachers have planned some super fun activities:  you'll get to do something fun in your classroom with your parents, then I'll be reading for all the Pre-K to second graders.  You don't want to miss out because I'll be passing out my magical fairy dust to help you be better readers.  Plus I'll be bringing something special for each of you to have.   I even heard there will be another storyteller for the older grades too.  I can tell my fairy dust has been working in your school and library because the Scholastic Van will be there with Clifford the Big Red Dog, you can meet him, do some activities and even get a FREE BOOK!  How cool is that????  ;)

I BETTER see everyone there,  I want to meet as many of the amazing kids at the amazing Briscoe Academy as I can!!  Remember to tell your parents and plan on staying after school Wednesday, February 15.  You don't want to miss it!

Happy Reading!

Happy Birthday Mathilda!

Posted on November 5, 2011 at 5:40 PM

Mathilda, thanks so much for inviting me to your birthday party.  I had a great time.  I loved your witch costume and all your friends had great costumes too.  Didn't you love Bubble Gum, Bubble Gum?  It is such a fun book to read!  I love all the crazy words, AND the bubble gum mess.

I hope you enjoy reading Princess Matilda (even if her name isn't spelled like yours!).  She was really great.  I hope you don't have to kiss any frogs like she did!

Have a wonderful day.

San Antonio Childrens Museum Storytime

Posted on August 23, 2011 at 9:50 PM

I had a great time meeting all the kids who were at the San Antonio Childrens Museum last Saturday.  It was a great "back to school" celebration.  The last day of freedom for some of us. I hope you liked "Miss Bindergarten gets Ready for Kindergarten"  by Joseph Slate and illustrated by Ashley Wolff and "Crazy Hair Day" by Barry Salzburg.  A few of us read "Wild About Books" by Judy Sierra and illustrated by Marc Brown.  If you like animals, you will love that book, plus it explains why you can NEVER find some of the animals at the zoo!

I hope everyone is enjoying a great back to school experience. 

Elolf Elementary Readers are GREAT!

Posted on June 1, 2011 at 7:16 AM

Hello to all my new friends at Elolf Elemetary school. :)  I had a great time with all the 1st graders and Ms. McConnell's class.  I hope you keep your promise to read over the summer break.  I've been working extra hard to find great books at the library for you to read.  Now you have some of my magic, so there are no excuses! 

I hope you liked the books we readin 1st grade: "Bubble Gum, Bubble Gum" by Lisa Wheeler and "Alice the Fairy" by David Shannon.  They are both really fun books, and you did a great job helping me read "Bubble Gum, Bubble Gum".  Make sure you don't step in any gum, you never know what might happen!  Ms. McConnell's class read "Sheep in a Shop" by Nancy Shaw, it is a fun book too.

I hope you have fun your last few days of school and you have a great summer.  Remember, no potato brains!!  I want you to work on your super fast, super strong monster truck brain, so you are ready when you come back to school. 

Happy Reading! 

Vogel Elementary ROCKS!!

Posted on May 26, 2011 at 5:31 PM

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.
