My favorite book by Dr. Seuss is Bartholomew and the Oobleck. In this story the selfish King causes a major catastrophe in his kingdom. The town is covered with Oobleck, a green, sticky, gooey substance. At the end the king has to admit that he is wrong.
My favorite character in The Watsons Go to Birmingham is Joetta (Joey). Joey is very sweet and seems to get along with everybody. She reminds me of my little sister, Jill. When Jill was little, she was everyone's baby and she would always make everyone laugh. Joetta also doesn't seem to have conflicts with anyone. That is why she is my favorite character so far.
I had so much fun reading The BFG with my RTI group. Now we are starting a new book, The Watsons Go to Birmingham-1963. We are welcoming new students to our group. I hope they enjoy working with us.

Dahl writes, "If you can think of anything more terrifying than that happening to you in the middle of the night, then let’s hear about it.". When I was just five years old, I was walking down the street with my mother. A bulldog ran up to me and knocked me down. I didn't know he was trying to be friendly. I cried and cried. My mother picked me up and brushed me off. The dog ran away. I never forgot that incident and I am still terrified of bulldogs.
Tuesday was the first day of Tech Camp. I think I have a very good group. I hope they have a good time. Today we opened e-mails and started our webpage. Eight people attended the class. Some were late, but I think they caught up.
Welcome to a new school year. I am looking forward to working with you. This year will be another Olympic year. I want everyone to strive for the gold in all areas, including behavior.
I predict that everyone is going to have fun at the party. At first I think everyone will eat the egg salad sandwiches and drink the punch. When Otis feels comfortable, I think he will pull out his guitar and start playing music. Then everyone will get up and dance. Everyone will have a great time and become friends forever.
I spent most of the time on my Spring Break laying around and watching television. I went to see the musical, Matilda, with my sister. The play was very good and the children in the production were phenomenal. I love the music. I also had an opportunity to go to my friend's new house. Amy Duhig use to teach at Washington. Now she is at a school in Bolingbrook. Her house is really beautiful. On Saturday my sisters and I took my cousin to lunch for her birthday. We went to Miracles From Heaven. The new theater, Block 37, had Dine In facilities and we were able to eat lunch while we watched the movie. So all in all the vacation was fun and relaxing.
Block 37 is a building in downtown Chicago which houses retail stores, move theaters and apartments.
I will spend Easter Sunday with my family. For the rest of the break, I will play games on my computer and my iPad. I also plan to get some new furniture. I need a bed and a couch. I need to get in my garage and toss things that I haven't used in years. If there is a nice weather day, I will take my mom to the Botanical Gardens. This is a very beautiful place near Chicago.
