Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs

For March is Reading Month, our school has had some pretty awesome events and reading incentives. Our student body was given a series of goals: 5,000 minutes, 10,000 minutes, 25,000 minutes, 50,000 minutes, and 100,000 minutes. Each goal had its own reward, so here is what we have seen so far:

  1. Our principal kissed a boa constrictor (yuck)
  2. Our dean of grades 3-5 got sprayed with silly string by the top reader from each classroom (sticky)
  3. Our dean of grades k-2 rode around the school on a tricycle ALL day (hilarious)

And yet to come is our dean of grades 6-8 reading a book from the roof top with a megaphone (sa-weet). The kids have loved it!

We also had a Book Character Day. Since my classroom decorated our classroom door as "Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs," I thought it was only appropriate that I matched.

By the end of the day, I had lost a fruit or vegetable here or there, but overall, success! Also, I just love second graders' interpretations of food. Who wouldn't want a red and blue striped ice cream cone with rainbow swirled ice cream on top?

Fellow teachers out there, what Book Characters have you dressed up as? It is never too early to plan an epic costume for next year!
