Celebrity Story Saturday 17

As a special treat today (tonight), we have a two-for-one. One post, two readers!

I know what you're wondering, "How did we ever get so lucky?" Well, the celebrities are team teachers- they work together to teach their classes. So, I couldn't have one read and not the other!

Welcome to the Celebrity club, Mrs. Skeens! Mrs. Skeens is a fourth grade teacher here at the Hills and her wit and bubbly personality keeps her students eager and ready to learn. She teaches reading, language arts, and spelling to her class and her teammate's class. (she is also another volunteer reader!)

The theme for today's books is snow. We are hoping to have a white Christmas, after all! Mrs. Skeen's book is The Snowy Day, by Ezra Jack Keats.

If you liked the story, you can go {HERE} and find some great activities that go with the story!

Wasn't that wonderful? But wait, I promised you two readers! Our next reader is... Mr. Kirby! You might remember Mr. Kirby from {THIS} post where he shared his "Parts of a Cell" rap that he wrote, or {THIS} post where he is stuffing his face with cake.Mr. Kirby is a creative and energetic part of the CHES faculty, and he is the math/ science/ social studies part of the Skeens-Kirby team.
(Now, Mr. Kirby might now have been a volunteer reader, but he didn't complain when I told him he had to do it.) Way to be a team player! ;)

When I asked Mr. Kirby which book he wanted to read, he replied, "I heard this story when I was a kid. It was about a mitten that animals found and crawled into. But I can't remember the name."
To which, I replied,"The mitten, by Jan Brett?" :)

So, this story is special to Mr. Kirby since it brings back memories of his youth, and it goes along with the snow theme. Take it away, Mr. Kirby!

Listen carefully, Mr. Kirby is bilingual!
