Comments from Woodyford County

Kentucky Greetings, WoodyWatchers! Everyone at our doghouse is up early today. Our family is traveling to London - Kentucky, that is - for a school visit today. I finished my breakfast early so before we crawled in The Woody Bus, I wanted to share our comments from our good friends at Simmons Elementary in Woodyford County! The 3rd Graders from Ms. Logan's class and Ms. Hisle's class get the prize for being our faithful followers! Chloe and I love hearing from them each week!

Hi Woody!

We can't believe that you broke the kitchen window with the drum sticks! We know we would have to save up a lot of money to fix a window and our parents would not be very happy with us!! Did you get a punishment for breaking the window?

The name of our local library is the Woody...ooops - we almost did it this time! The Woodford Public Library. Almost all of the students in our class have a library card and lots of us go there to check out books. We searched our school catalog for Curious George and found that there are seventeen books and several videos. None of us were alive when the book we looked at was printed, but our teacher, Ms. Logan, was three years old.

Our prediction for the job advertisement is that Woody has seen an ad for a band. We think this band is looking for a drummer and Woody thinks he will be perfect for the job. We can't wait until next week to see what all the excitement is about.

Thanks for putting our email on the blog so our families can see it! We love listening to your story each week!

Thank you,

Ms. Logan's 3rd Grade Reading Class

Dear Woody,

We are excited to tell you that we've been collecting money for the Woodford County Human Society too - just like Ms. Logan's class. We're going to count how much we've raised on Friday, so we'll let you know next week how much we have so far!

We LOVED the Goober pea song...we thought it was pretty funny! We are so excited that our prediction was correct! We're sorry the kitchen window was broken and we hope you get it replaced soon.

By the way, most of us have a library card to the Woodyford County Library - hahaha!. We're working on having 100% of our class with a library card.

Our prediction for chapter 4 is that you saw an ad for a drumming job. We think this because we know how much you like drumming, plus you already have a drum set.

We love seeing our emails on your blog! We're going to look up the Curious George author and series, because a lot of us like reading those books to. Which Curious George book is your favorite? Also, we were wondering what your favorite band is, since you like drumming so much!

Your friend,

Mrs. Hisle's 3rd grade reading class

In case you're wondering the same thing, my favorite Curious George book is Curious George Goes to the Hospital. If you haven't read it, check it out. As far as my favorite band goes, stay tuned to the story and you will find out! I bet I'll be singing Goober Peas all the way to London now that the song is in my head!

Have a great day and Work and Dream like a BIG DOG!
