Read Me Week

With all the birthday prep going on I never posted the cute photos of Emma during Read Me week at school.  For those who do not know about Read Me week it is so fun.  Most schools choose a week near Dr. Seuss's Birthday to celebrate reading with fun dress up days, guest readers and fun activities as a school.  Emma loved this week.  Her school wears standard school attire, which means polos, polo dresses, jumpers and khaki, navy or black bottoms.  So, to get to dress up for a few days was a special treat!!  Look at all the fun she had!
Monday was hats off to reading day, this was after school and she was excited to show me she got the Art Star award in art class that day.
 Tuesday was the Book Character parade.  She decided on Cinderalla and was so happy to be a princess for the day.
 Wacky Wednesday and she loved wearing crazy stuff and her shirt backwards was her favorite part.  She even went to Speech at Vandy like this that day:)  This was the day I read to her class, and after hearing about the Titan Cheerleaders, the Maggie Moo cow and so many cool speakers I think I was a big let down for her class.  However, Emma was so happy to have me eat lunch with her, a friend and Taylor of course.  She also was so happy to share a Piggie and Elephant book with her new friends.  I just loved reading to them all and seeing their Wacky outfits.
 Thursday was silly sock day.  She loves her thigh high socks!!!

 Friday was Reading is Cool day and they all wore shades!!
 So Taylor was not left out, we had a fun Cat and the Hat day and we made our own hats and played with Lorax trees in our dirt playdoh!
As you can see it was a fun week of dressing up and celebrating reading.  The really cool thing was her school had a book drop off for Ronald McDonald house and gathered over 900 books for sick children and their families to have books while they are in treatments.  So cool!!

Reading is the best!  Especially when your mom is an ex teacher and current assistant children's librarian!!
