We started off our week with children's author, Marc Clark back to visit my class. He shared his newest ebook, The Prince who Was Afraid of the Dark (my kids were mesmerized!) and to sign his book, The Royal Fables. Some of my students had submitted illustrations and they were thrilled to see it published! 100% of the book sales proceeds go back to children's cancer research. Check out Marc's website! He loves to visit schools!
Thursday was "Read my Shirt" day. All students at school wore a shirt with (appropriate) writing on it. I love that kids understand that reading is not just a subject at school or just in books! Every year I wear a shirt I made with my FAVORITE saying, "Explain your thinking!" (My kids groan when they read it! Lol!) My fourth grade partner wore a Spiderman graphic novel shirt! (There's actually print/text from the comics printed on it!)
It was a GREAt week! How did you celebrate Read Across America Day and Literacy Week with your students?
