How do you become a better reader? READ, READ, READ, READ, READ!! That’s what second graders have been doing! We’ve had a “Pumpkin Reading Challenge” for the month of November where the students earned a pumpkin for each book or chapter they read. When we reached 120 pumpkins, we had a party! They earned it right before Thanksgiving break, and we played some fun relays and had yummy pumpkin whoopie pies! They are super pumped to keep it going for the month of December!
