A couple of old favorites, and the usual Spring routine for today. Only one thing changed. At the start of the first book, I asked everyone to make a quiet noise to help us get ready to read. We all said shhhh twice, and then I said, "Let's stay this quiet while we read our story." It worked like a charm. I didn't repeat this technique for the second book, but I definitely will in the future, because this group is so large and loud!
