The 2nd grade class read A Hippopotamus Ate the Teacher by Mike Thaler this week. Afterward, Ms. Connie told her students to follow her to a mysterious location in the high school area. Curious as to where their teacher was leading them, the children followed obediently. Connie told them to stand inside of some lines of chalk on the blacktop. They still didn't understand what was going on until, finally she said, "Looks like you've been eaten by a Hippopotamus!" As the children looked around, they saw that the lines of chalk were in the shape of a hippo.
Ms. Connie is so fun!
