Today we were SO excited to have the opportunity to meet a "real" author and illustrator, Jon Klassen.
Mr. Jon Klassen is originally from Winnipeg and has published many books. We have read several in class, and we were fans of all of them! We also thought it was kind of cool that he is Mrs. Lowe's cousin! Today he read some of his stories to us. Then he showed us how to make an illustration similar to one from his most recent book.
Mr. Jon Klassen is scheduled to be at McNally Robinson book store tomorrow, Nov. 15th at 2pm. Everyone is welcome to stop by and meet him. He will also be signing copies of his books.
Every morning when we arrive at school, we sign in on the Smart Board. This is the question we signed in to today. Mrs. Grant is hopeful that the next time we have this same question that each and every student will be able to say a definite YES, that someone read them a story before bedtime the previous night....and every night before bedtime......please
Sharing time....something that is blue
