Clifford the Big Red Dog Celebration

       Clifford the Big Red Dog
Every year we start the school year out with a unit on Clifford the Big Red Dog.  What could be more fun than Emily Elizabeth and the love for her dog.  After sharing many of the books, we have a story writing contest in each of the second grade classrooms.  Then when we have our big Clifford party, the winners get to share their stories with everyone.  For the party we all dress in red (another contest), wear red ears, and ink on black noses.  After watching a video on Norman Bridwell , the author, we enjoy a lot of red foods and sing along with Clifford on another video.  After we study letter writing, we write to Norman Bridwell and he always writes back.  Another reason why he is one of our favorite authors.
