On Friday afternoon we had our read in! The kids brought in pillows, blankets and books from home. We spent an hour enjoying books.
We read a the book Purple, Green and Yellow by Robert Munsch book on Friday. It is a really funny story about a little girl who wants coloring markers. First she colors with washable marker then moves on to smelly markers and finally on to super-indelible-never-come-off markers. Funny things happen when she decides to paint just one finger nail purple.
Robert Munsch has a great website where he reads all his books. Take a peek at the website and listen to his hilarious stories!
