Wonder Wednesday - Author Skype Visit
*On Thursday, October 6th my fourth graders and I had our first Skype visit of the year. And what a great one to start with.
*The first read aloud of our year together was Nine, Ten: A September 11 Story by Nora Raleigh Baskin.
*It was a wonderful reading experience and we had many deep and meaningful discussions while I read the story to my class.
