Healthy Kids, Happy Kids Bike Safety Program, sponsored by our PTO, came to Rowe School this week to teach us how to use our bicycles safely. We saw how to adjust our helmets correctly, and we learned how important it is to wear one to protect our brains if we were to fall off. They also taught us how to pass others safely when we're riding our bikes on the sidewalk. They recommended that we use a bell, a horn, or our voices to alert pedestrians that we'll be riding past.

The first grade went to see Eartha today! "It's huge!"
Here is a poem one of the Dolphins wrote when we got back.
The big globe sitting on a stand.
The states zooming round and round.
Look through the glass and you will see...
Eartha looking at you and me.

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!
