Young Author Books

We are beginning our Young Author Books. Soon I will be sending a request for volunteers to help put our books together as we get closer to completing. There is quite a bit of illustrating involved, and many markers are in their "end stages" due to being used all year. Please check with your child to see if they might need a new set of markers to get them through their beautiful Young Author Book illustrations. Thank you!

What's New This Week?

Language Arts
