Three Cheers for Ms. Logan and Ms. Hisle

Kentucky Greetings, WoodyWatchers! Our family is getting ready to visit Anchorage Elementary. Dad is packing the Woody Bus, Mom is making sure all 5 of us have our collars and leashes, and my brother and sisters are packing their backpacks for the day. I wanted to write in my journal before I hopped in the Woody Bus.

If you're following Doghouse Divided, you know at the end of Chapter 1 I had a little trouble with my drumsticks. Ms. Logan's class and Ms. Hisle's class at Simmons Elementary in Woodford County have been reading faithfully and sending emails. We love opening our inbox and seeing emails from our friends. We wanted to share:

Hi Woody,

Our class started collecting money for the Woodford Humane Society. We thought it was funny that you called it the Woodyford Humane Society!! We are going to collect money the whole time we are reading your book. Then, we are going to invite someone from the Humane Society to our class to collect our donation. We will keep you posted on how we are doing with this.

Chapter 2 was great! We were suprised to see that it was a drumset. Our prediction was not correct! We talked about drumsets and instruments. Our music teacher will be happy that we knew all four families without having to look them up! Someone in our class wants a drum set but their parents said they were too noisy! We hope your drumset doesn't start a civil war in your neighborhood.

We think Woody is in the doghouse because his drum sticks came down and hit someone in the head. This will definitely cause him to get in trouble. Especially since his mom and dad are not happy with the new purchase.

Thank you for emailing us back. We are really excited about listening to chapter 3 next week. Also, we were excited to see our post on the blog!!!

Hope to hear from you soon,

Ms. Logan's 3rd grade reading class

Simmons Elementary


Dear Woody,

We love the story "Doghouse Divided"! Our favorite part was when Woody did the drum roll on his new drum set! Our class can't agree on what we think Woody's drumsticks hit, but our prediction is that they either broke a window or an overhead light. We know the drumsticks made a clanging noise, so we think something definitely broke. We can't wait to find out what happens next!

Your friends,

Mrs. Hisle's 3rd grade reading class

Simmons Elementary

We are hoping we can meet Ms. Logan and Ms. Hisle and their classes one day! In fact, if we were in the 3rd grade, we would hope we would have a teacher like one of them! Three cheers for them and their students for their hard work! Hip Hip Hooray, Hip Hip Hooray, Hip Hip Hooray!

Dad is calling me so I better skee-daddle! Stay tuned for Chapter 3. Enjoy the weather and Work and Dream like a BIG DOG!
