We have a lot of Elise Gravel books in our classroom, and the students love them.
Yesterday, we used Elise Gravel’s book I Want a Monster to help us to draw monsters. The students were so pleased with their results that they wished they could show them to her. Because I know that Elise Gravel is on Twitter, I suggested that the students tweet her their pictures. So we did.
And to the student’s delight, right at the end of our school day, she tweeted every one of the students back! “Best end of the day ever” they all said.
Putting on and taking off our snow clothes consumes a significant amount of time in our classroom. This week, we decided to challenge ourselves to see how fast we can do it if we really try. Can you beat our time?
