inspired by the snow!!'

We were very excited to write about the snow! 




So much snow!!!

We read another good story about snow today! It sure would be nice if it would stop for s little while... or so I think.... the kids disagree!!! Let it snow !!!



We have a hands on understanding of the word blizzard! We read a story about a boy who lived through a blizzard in 1978. The story had drawn illustrations but it was non-fiction. 


wow! We had a Special Guest!

Today we got to meet award winning author and illustrator Jon Klassen. He read us some of his stories and showed us how to draw some of his favourite characters.  We practiced drawing with him. He even gave us a sneak peek at a new book he worked on that isn't even in stores yet!
