Author Visit



Cathryn Falwell visited our school today. This amazing author and illustrator has published 28 books! 

                   

She uses collages to illustrate her books. Here she's showing us some of the materials she uses to create the pictures.


                   

She showed us pictures of her tree house (Yes, it is hers!), her studio, and the pond she writes about! 


She even had us interact with the books by holding up pictures when we heard our animals name, making sounds she hears around the pond, thinking about action words, and acting out being turtles in the sun!



We also learned how a publisher only uses 4 colors for all of the illustrations in all books! 

Thank you for coming to visit us today!

Happy Holidays!

Yesterday we visited Mrs. LeMay's class to see the dress rehearsal for the Gingerbread Baby. We loved it! Some of us remember performing it last year with our kindergarten friends.

Thursday is Pajama Day! Please send your child to school in his or her comfy pajamas (without stuffies and blankies, please).

Today we are celebrating the publication of our Realistic Fiction stories with all of the other grade one learners! We're looking forward to sharing our work with our peers. Here is a picture of us sharing our stories with other Dolphins.


Our Community Meeting today was about the Holidays of Light! We sang songs and made Family Traditions headbands.

Merry Christmas and Best Wishes for a Happy Holiday season!
