FIRST FEW WEEKS OF SCHOOL ARE GREAT!

 

Hi Guys,

Well, I know that things have settled down for you now that school is in session.  I am sure that many of you have chosen clubs to be in before and after school, too.  I heard that at one high school they had a robotics club, where the students spend the semester making a robot that they can enter into competition to see who wins!  That sounds so exciting!  

Then I heard that there is a reading club at another school.  You know that’s the one I love the most. Reading opens the world up to you.  Just think if you want to know more about robotics, just grab a book at the library and read it.  You’ll learn a lot.  

I know a woman who is an author and she travels once a year to a reading conference and sits with students of all ages.  These students all have a desire to be writers themselves.  Say, that’s a good idea.  Have you ever had the desire to write a book?  Drop me a line if you have.  I’d like to talk with you about it.  Make sure it’s all right with Mom and Dad.  Just leave me a comment on this blog so I can get to you, and I’ll be glad to talk to you about it.

Do you see the picture above, with all the kids raising their hands to answer the question?  That’s what I want to make sure all of you do.  Reading makes you smarter, too.  So, keep it simple and read a book.  Talk to you later.

FUN AT SCHOOL CHECKLIST

cartoon of children at libraryWow! The summer is almost over, and in a few weeks, school will be back in session.  Now, I know that some might be saying, “Awww… I don’t want to go back to school right now. I’M HAVING TOO MUCH FUN!  That’s great that you have had a fun time for the months you’ve been away from school.  In fact, you should be ready to go back to school because remember, school is fun, too!

 

At school you can:

  • See your friends you may not have seen during the summer
  • Get into that after school club you’ve been wanting to get into
  • Join the football, baseball, soccer, track, tennis, and more teams
  • Help make school a better place by volunteering to clean up around the outside of your school
  • Become a member of the student council at school, helping the voice of the students to be heard
  • Volunteer to read to the kids in the school Library
  • Help plan the next school grounds events

I mean there are so many fun and wonderful things you can do at school. So, now look forward to going back to school.  You’ll have fun there, too.  Oh yes, and remember read a book about 20 minutes every day. The world opens up to anyone who reads a book!

Talk to you later.
