Dog Gone Wild - Predictions and the Purple Socks

Kentucky Greetings, WoodyWatchers! What an exciting week for us! Chapter 1 of our brand new story, Dog Gone Wild, is appearing in newspapers across the state. Already, we have received emails, comments, questions, and predictions. If you have read Chapter 1, you know our family is preparing to go on a camping trip. We asked students to predict what I would pack for the trip. This was one email I received yesterday:

We would like to make a prediction about what you will pack on your camping challenge.
We believe you will pack water, pupcorn, tent, doggy bed, and matches to start a fire.

Awesome predictions. I will give you a little bitty hint - one of your predictions is true. Which one??? You will have to wait and see.

Mom received an email too regarding the story. Take a look:

Just finished Chapter 1. Love it! Can't wait until next week. Do you really have those striped socks?


The answer is YES! Mom really does have the purple striped fuzzy socks. Chloe and I love when Mom wears them. They are so soft and warm - and fun to try to chew - until we hit a toe.

Keep the letters and emails coming. We love hearing from you!

Make sure you listen to the podcast and participate in the activities. You can click on the Dog Gone Wild banner on our homepage and it will take you to the activities and podcast. If you haven't listened to the podcast in the past, you won't want to miss it!

Have a great day! It's only 10:30 but Mrs. Harper's email made me hungry for some pupcorn!

Always be a survivor and Work and Dream like a BIG DOG!
