Today, we held an assembly to kick off our "One School, One Book" project at MEC.

Each day, we will read a chapter from a book called "Chocolate Fever" by Robert Kimmel Smith. We have also recorded/read each chapter of the book and will "unveil" each chapter after they are read in class so they can also be read at home. Once the book is complete, we will have a grade level "Reading Rally" where the children will participate in activities that relate to chocolate. We will also watch the original "Charlie and the Chocolate Factory" at the end of this special event.

Today, we all caught "Chocolate Fever" as the teachers/staff of MEC created a "flash mob" dance routine to the famous 1980's song called "I Want Candy". Our own Mrs. Ebner, one of our reading specialists, rewrote the lyrics to make the song all about reading! We would like to thank all of our teachers who either sang or danced along today at our assembly. We would also like to thank Mrs. Brueck, for making shirts for us that say "I LOVE READING". They were the perfect ensemble for our project!

Below are the lyrics to the I Love Reading song that Mrs. Ebner created! I KNOW you'll want to sing along!

I Love Reading (sung to the tune of I Want Candy by Aaron Carter)

I know a book that's short and sweet
It’s so fine, it can't be beat
It's got everything that I desire
Reading sets my mind on fire
I love reading
I love reading
I love reading
I love reading

I like to read when the sun goes down
I like to read all over town
Books are what the doctor ordered
Books can make my mouth water
I love reading
I love reading
I love reading
I love reading

Reading on the beach, there's nothing better
I like to read when I’m wrapped in a sweater
Someday soon I'll end this rhyme
Then I can read all the time
I love reading
I love reading
I love reading
I love reading
