Kindergarteners are working on a Mo Willems author study. Their introduction to Mo Willems kicked off with a short video of the author and an introduction of his other books. Afterwards I read his newest book Goldilocks and the Three Dinosaurs. The students loved Mo's humor. Finally they moved to the computer to visit Mo Willem's site and play The Goldilocks and Three Dinosaurs game.
Fourth grade students are working on learning about the causes and battles of the American Revolution. After summarizing their information they created a Voki to present their information. The students were very excited and loved in ability to customize their avatar.

My 4th grade book club and a book club from Ms. Haile's class had the opportunity to talk to Jeanne DuPrau. She is the author of several books including the City of Ember. Fourth grade students chatted with her about the City of Ember. During the visit they discussed the character development, plot choices and her writing process.
