This week, our kindergartners through second graders will celebrate author/illustrator Lois Ehlert’s birthday! Ehlert’s book, “The Scraps Book,” is a 2016 Monarch Award nominee. She is also well-known for the classic book, “Chicka Chicka Boom Boom.”
In grades 3-5, we will finish reading the 2016 Bluestem nominee, “Alex the Parrot: No Ordinary Bird.” We will also watch a video so that the students can watch some of Irene’s work with Alex. So far, they seem to be really enjoying seeing Alex in action!
