Preparations for the January 22, 2015, author visit with Barbara Rosenstock are underway! Half Day students have worked with Mrs. Lathrop in the library to take notes in the form of fact fragments from the book The Streak. They also compared and contrasted themselves with the author after reading “10 Important Things You Might Want to Know About Me” from Barb Rosenstock’s website Barb Rosenstock, Books for Children. They got started on a similar list about themselves to share with the author. Another focus of these lessons was citing sources from the book and website.
