Students at Clark Elementary School participated in an essay contest, "Why I Love Dr. Seuss books..." The contest was held in conjunction with all the other activities for Read Across America week.
Caleb decided he wanted to participate in the contest. He has only been writing 2 or 3 words together, so this was a big challenge for him. He told me what he wanted to say and I wrote it down so he wouldn't forget and so he could see how to spell the words. It took him 2 nights to write it because his hand started hurting and he wanted to take a break. But he was determined to finish it and I was very proud of him.
Caleb was chosen as the winner out of all the Kindergarteners. He won a $10 gift card to the movie theater to see the new Dr. Suess movie, "Horton Hears a Who!"
