Last week 1st and 2nd grade got a real treat on the National Day of Writing (October 20th): they got to Skype with author Erin Dealey (erindealey.com
) who lives in California. Ms. Dealey wrote many great books including Goldie Locks Has Chicken Pox
, and Little Bo Peep Can't Get to Sleep
, and Deck the Walls
. She gave great tips to our students on writing such as a book always starts out as a "sloppy copy," and a few of our students got to ask her questions. This picture shows Madeline asking our author about her writing process, and Ms. Dealey is showing Madeline what her "sloppy copy" looked like. Thank you Ms. Dealey for giving our students this special treat!
This week, on October 30th, 3rd and 4th grade will get to Skype with author C. Alexander London and talk about his new book The Wild Ones.
