Over the course of the next few weeks, all Second and Third Graders will be making connections while hearing the story "The Year of Billy Miller" by Kevin Henkes. Students will be blogging about the book, connecting with classrooms across the United States using Skype/Google Hangouts and doing activities related to the book.
Also, all Kindergarteners and First Graders will be doing an Author Study of Amy Krouse Rosenthal during the next few weeks. They will be doing special activities and also connecting with other classes through Skype/Google Hangouts. They will also do a small research project relating to the author.
A fun time should be had by all!
