The Hat

Just sharing our door- we read books from the same author during Literacy week and compared the texts. Here is our craft from The Hat. I love Hedgie! This idea was totally copied from The Chalk Talk blog-

Happy Birthday Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.

Last week we spent two days learning about the life and work of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. It is so refreshing to me that my students think the segregation laws were absolutely absurd. They looked at me in disbelief when I told them that black people couldn't eat at the same restaurants as white people. They give me hope for the future.
This is probably too late for most- but this is what I taught last week. link here

Author Visit

We were SO lucky this week!! Nick Bruel the author of Bad Kitty came to our school. He read us Bad Kitty and Poor Puppy. He also talked about how he writes his books and took questions from the kids. He was AMAZING!! I know this experience will stay with  my students forever. They were so impressed to meet a REAL author/illustrator!
