Reading Enrichment Book Bowl

It's Tuesday night and Ariel is attempting for the second time to sleep over Eva's house.  Wish me luck that I don't end up driving in the middle of the night to get her.  

Back to class.  
 Hey Nate!
 I thought Nate was big but this other boy is the same age too.
 Activity time.

 Dot Dot!
 Black sheep black sheep what do you see?
 The sitter is in charge, let's get out of here...
 Bye Ariel, enjoy your doughnut.
 That night Amy and I took Aden to Council Rock High School for a really cool event.  All the 2nd, 3rd, and 4th graders in the district were challenged to read 25 chapter books.  Aden has not been the strongest reader but we are so proud at how hard he worked at this.  He ended up reading 16 of the books.  The kids were then broken into teams and sent out around the school to answer questions about the books.  
 There was a classroom for each book.  The kids went in and had to answer 5 questions about the book.  If they got all 5 right, they got a stamp in their book.  
 I liked this.
 We actually thought school started earlier.  
 It was inanely packed!  We knew so many people.  It was all overwhelming.  
 Aden actually read more of the books than anyone in his group so they all counted on him.
 He took it really hard if he got any wrong but we were just so happy he was trying.
 It was neat to see the classrooms.  

 I don't remember having sofas in any of my classrooms.  
 Aden's teachers.  I don't remember having teachers like this either.
 Someone sent this tweet out.
 Hey Julie!
 We had a fun night!
 We got back and the other three were exhausted.  
 Bed time!
