Let's take a walk through a brand new day.

Paul: Super Hero!

This is Paul, a Super Hero!  Paul is a reader!  He’s also a good listener and is attentive to details. He isn’t a big talker in the classroom but watch how he lights up when he talks about Copper!  He and his classmates read the book: Northbounders: 2,186 Miles of Friendship. Now, he’s reading it again at home with his Mimi and Paul has a new goal. Listen to Paul as he talks about his goal and reveals details about his proposed adventure. You’ll even find out about his special friend, Barney!

Paul’s teacher sent this video because she is so proud of his desire to learn and set goals and engage in the classroom.  Leave Paul a comment below because he is going to read all of your comments in class next week. His classmates will get to read them too! Keep up the good work, Paul, and keep on dreaming.  I think you’ve already earned your Trail Name:  Super Hero!
