Read for the Record!
Students at Kelly Creek Elementary and West Gresham Elementary were part of a world record effort today! I got to read Llama Llama Red Pajama to kids at Kelly Creek, and Mrs. Verdoorn read to the students at West Gresham.
According to the website, "people in big cities, small towns, and everywhere in between participated in Jumpstart's Read for the Record on October 6, 2011. Check out some great highlights from the day when 2,184,155 children around the world joined in reading Llama Llama Red Pajama by Anna Dewdney! From grassroots events in small towns, to major events in Jumpstart's regions, to reading with Jumpstart's Read for the Record Ambassador Bridget Moynahan on NBC's TODAY Show, Jumpstart's sixth annual Read for the Record was a huge record breaking success!" Read more here.
A great time was had by all, and Mrs. Verdoorn said she now has the other Anna Dowdney books so her students can read those, too.
Way to go Kelly Creek and West Gresham!
