{Reading Restaurant}

Welcome to Alamo Cafe!

"May I take your order?"

Last Friday Madison's class had "Reading Restaurant". Tons of parents & grandparents (and aunts & uncles... neighbors..... you get the idea.....everyone under the moon came) showed up for this most amazing event of the 1st grade class. Yes... sitting on those teeny tiny chairs that you pray you won't fall out of, with your knees drawn up to your chest.

Maddie was most excited about this activity. We show up.... Maddie is our "waitress". She shows us to our seats. We choose from a menu of books they have been reading all year long. Each book shows the payment. For example, for "Madeline" she gets an "Awesome Job" and a pat on the back. She then takes her little paper plate, picks her book up, places it on her plate, and comes back holding the plate with the new book on it, waitress style! She reads us another book, asks us what was our next order, then we start the process all over again!

After it is all over, we eat on yummy cookies & ::gag:: Capri Sun's. The mini water bottles were snatched up pretty fast. darn

All in all we had a wonderful time listening to Madison read & show off her reading skills!

Poor Mike, always the subject of my picture taking when there isn't a kid in sight..... let's work on a smile next time, sweetie!


  1. This sounds like such a wonderul idea! I wish they did this when my kiddos were srill in elementary school. I am laughing about the cookie, and capri sun! Fun fun! :)

  2. I love that idea!! I know a couple of people who would love that idea!

  3. Good job Maddie! Keep up the reading.
