Since it's Dr. Seuss's birthday, Read Across America Day, Book Fair Week, and Community Reader Day this week....I thought I would simply do a Seuss-inspired post full of motivational quotes:
I have loved reading The Good Egg and The Bad Seed to classes so I went and bought The Cool Bean. Will be reading during Wednesday evening's Book Fair event!
Disability in Kidlit.

Great things I noticed last week:
- Thanks to the PTA for a smooth Bagel Breakfast for our families. Thank you to the teachers that stepped in and helped out with directing traffic and serving food!
- Loved seeing kids sneaking a peek into the Book Fair once it was set up. So many excited kids ready to shop for books this week!
- I was invited to a wonderful book tasting at Cotting's Cafe! Students had a chance to sample different genres and nibble on different books.
- I also was invited to visit 5OC while they shared some of their colony projects. Loved that some students did actual models and some students created virtual colonies using SketchUp.
I am going to send this resource out to parents, but wanted to share it with all of you as well: https://www.nasponline.org/resources-and-publications/resources-and-podcasts/school-climate-safety-and-crisis/natural-disaster-resources/talking-to-children-about-covid-19-(coronavirus)-a-parent-resource
