Notes on November 2013

In November…

we talked Mock Caldecott.

As we kicked off our Mock Caldecott unit, I shared a few lessons learned from last year.

we took a look at upcoming books.

There’s a batch of good looking books coming out in the next few months – here are 10 that caught my eye.

we hosted an author visit.

Stick Dog author Tom Watson visited my school and a good time was had. I took photos along the way.
