Mrs. McGriff's Reading Blog

Happy reading!

No fooling…fun on a Friday


First fun item for Friday is news of another student being published.  You guys ROCK this year!

Chase S wrote a memoir about shooting his first turkey.  It is up on an outdoor/hunting/fishing blog.  Check it out at Bill Howard’s Outdoors.  Not only is it published on this blog, it will also run in two newspapers:  The Wilson Times and The Yancey County News. 

Now, for a history lesson.  You may have missed the first broadcast in 1957, but it’s not too late to learn all about the spaghetti harvest in Switzerland.  Besides, enjoy the cool English accents in this BBC broadcast.


What is your favorite April Fool’s joke–whether you pulled it or had it pulled on you?


  1. Fantastic writing Chase and congratulations on your publication! I enjoyed your memoir. I encourage you to keep hunting and writing!!!! (You are GOOD at both!)
    I am thankful that you have a wonderful teacher, like Mrs. Mc GRiff to help you find your “writer’s Voice”.
    I am so proud of you!!!
    Mrs. Driver
