Happy Reading Dance!

We've lost some of the joy in teaching children how to read.  One teacher shared that when a child opens a book and says, "I can read!" she celebrates by closing the door, standing on the table, and doing the "Happy Reading Dance."  She waves her arms, kicks her feet,  and sings this song to the tune of "The Noble Duke of York."

I’m H-A-P-P-Y,
And I can tell you why.
Child’s name can read.
What a magic thing!
I’m H-A-P-P-Y!
