4th grade teachers dressed up as crayons for the Halloween parade on Friday. Miss Tavares was blue, Miss T was yellow, and Mrs. K. Dawson was orange. Mrs. S. Dawson and Mrs. Horton were not able to partake in the parade because they were at a training session. After recess and lunch, we were treated to Mrs. Risko as our guest reader. The entire 4th grade was able to hear Mrs. Risko read The Crayon Box That Talked by Shane DeRolf. This is a wonderful book about crayons in a crayon box who don’t seem to like each other. The crayons come to realize that they don’t like each other because they don’t know one another and are concentrating on their differences. After being brought together by a girl, they come to realize that even though they are unique they can get along together. What a wonderful lesson for us to learn!
