Hot Cocoa Reading Celebrations

Seventy Nine 3rd, 4th, and 5th grade students celebrated achieving a reading challenge by enjoying yummy hot cocoa on a cold winter's day. To qualify, students read 8 or more KC3 or Mark Twain Nominees. We had a great time reading, chatting, and drinking cocoa. Check out our pics below...


The Boy Who Invented TV:The Story of Philo Farnsworth by Kathleen Krull

Imagine what it would feel like growing up on a farm in American in 1906.When Philo Farnsworth came in everything changed. When Philo was three he was interested in anything mechanical. He would ask tons of questions. When he was old enough, he invented the T.V. This book was a cliff hanger to me because I was wondering what other inventions Philo invented. Read this book to find out what other cool inventions he made.

The Big Fat Cow That Goes Kapow

5,4,3,2,1 Kapow!
This book is fun filled with plenty of excitement.
You will go bonkers for Noel the Mole.
And honkers for Klaus the Mouse.
Willy the Worm is really wormy.
Keith, Ed, and Daisy are quite squirmy.
Lumpy Head Fred is very mighty and Brave Dave is not brave during nighty.
On Ruth's super scooter you will have a blast.
On Mike's bike you will go very fast.
For somewhere less spikey, read this book and say hello to the Big Fat Cow That Goes Kapow.

Stagecoach Sal by Deborah Hopkinson

The book I read was called Stagecoach Sal. The main characters were Sal and Poetic Pete. The problem was Poetic Pete is the most polite robber in San Fransisco. He pops out of nowhere and asks Sal if he could have a ride down to the town and Sal says yes. But every time Poetic Pete opens his mouth Sal sings something so he can not rob her. Read to find out how this book ended.

My name is Sangoel

Sangoel just came to America. All the people can not say Sangoel's name correctly.
But,oh no, Sangoel has a solution that I can't tell you. But if you want to know how he solved the problem, you must read My name is Sangoel by the awesome Karen Lynn Williams and Khadra Mohammed.

Eleven-year-old foster child (Gwen) is dreading to go and live in the Mercy Manor. But, when she does, she appreciates everything going on... (Except the fact, that her new beloved home is in fact haunted with a replay of a crime that was committed over thirty years ago!!!)
Gwen tells anyone that will listen. Though it's hard to do if no one believes you! With all her family not believing her (Except her younger sister Tessie) and "not wanting to hear another word." They think it's best for her to move out! But Gwen knows she must help this ghost!
Can Gwen solve the crime?
Can she convince her family to let her stay?
And can she save her family in the process?
Read the "Charming and daring novel that will keep you hooked until the very last page" and find out!
