We all know that March brings out some of the best basketball games due to the NCAA Men's Basketball Tournament. Well, March brings out the readers in my room! And they are excited!

Reading March Madness has begun! All students who come for reading assistance participate in the reading tournament. The books are selected mainly by primary students and myself. The students selected three books that they love and I chose the competitors. The bracket is hung outside the room. And the reading and read-alouds have begun!

The first round has seven book match-ups and last year's winner gets a bye. The students select a match-up, read the books, and choose which book they prefer. The books with the most tallies at the end of this week will go onto to the next round, the quaterfinals.

Here are the first round match-ups:

I Want My Hat Back

Sam & Dave Dig a Hole vs. My New Friend is So Much Fun

Dragon’s Fat Cat vs. Alexander and the Wind-up Mouse

The Perfect Nest vs. That Is Not a Good Idea!

King Bidgood’s in the Bathtub vs. A Weekend with Wendell

The Day the Crayons Quit vs. Listen to my Trumpet

Waiting is Not Easy vs. Five Little Piggies

Buz VS. The Paper Bag Princess
