In the red reading group, students are reading Dear Mr. Henshaw. In the story, Leigh Botts is challenged to write his favorite author, Mr. Henshaw. Leigh begins writing a series of real and pretend letters to the author in attempt to get the author to write him back. Our students have started corresponding with students from Newton Parrish Elementary School as pen pals. Their writing is AMAZING :) Check out the pictures of the students working on their pen pal letters!
