Read for the Record

By Eric Antuna


    Hi all!

    Just a quick note to let you know that October 8, 2009 is Read for the Record day. The book that's been chosen is Eric Carle's A Very Hungry Caterpillar. So if you can, grab it and read it! I think kids will be inspired to read and become involved if they see that more than 1,000,000 people are involved!

    I also found this GREAT idea to use with the story. It's a simple quick activity to make any student become excited about reading! Take a look here. Thanks for reading!

Change is in the Air!

There's been a lot of change this year, and what a year it has been! I was involved with several different types of programs at my school, including the School Site Council, the Student Success Teams, the Technology Liaison for the district, our After School Safety and Enrichment Program, and many other things! I have grown as a teacher and have learned so much from my role here as the 1st and 2nd grade Teacher Advisor for Scholastic.com. But things are a changing!
