We had been waiting a long time for this and it didn't disappoint! On Tuesday, November 4th, The Long Haul had its book birthday. We got 2 copies for school - one to raffle off to the 1/2 classes on Thursday and one to raffle off on Friday to the 3/4 classes. The kids were so excited to see the book and quickly filled out raffle tickets which we collected all day. Just before dismissal, the winner was drawn and announced! When the 3/4 classes came on Friday, they were already asking if they would get to have a winner too! Of course! I love how little things like this can generate so much excitement for reading!
