    Detective-Eye         Dectective 2

    About two times a month a mystery person visits our classroom.  This mysterious person will read us a book, explains how reading is important in their life and shares their love of reading to the class!  Below are the Mystery Readers that have visited us so far this year.   Contact Mrs. Trautwein if you would like to arrange a visit to Room 145 as a MYSTERY READER!
    Miss Mac
    Our very first Mystery Reader of the 2009-2010 school year was Miss Mac, our Grandfriend.  She will be visiting us once a week and while she is here, she READS with us!  Fun, fun!  While she visited Room 145 as a Mystery Reader she read The So-So Cat by Edith Thacher Hurd.

    Mr. Kemen visited our room and shared the importance of reading and writing for his job.  We learned that he even uses the writing process (just like us) so that he can publish articles at work!  We enjoyed his reading of the book, Never Ride our Elephant to School by Doug Johnson. 
    Mystery Snowman
    Our Mystery Snowman came in on the day before our Winter Break.  The Snowman shared his love of reading with us and did a FINE FINE job reading one of Mrs. Trautwein's favorite books- A Fine, Fine School by Sharon Creech.  I wonder who the Snowman was???

    Mr. Seamon
    Mr. Seamon visited us on Sports Day and helped us prepare for the Super Bowl by reading Family Huddle by Peyton Manning, Eli Manning, and Archie Manning.  We had so much fun hearing this awesome story!  Additionally, we learned how Mr. Seamon reads both professionally and for enjoyment!
