Jan Brett Author Study

First Grade Room 136 Mrs. DeCola's Class

Connecting with an Author

This Fall we began an author study of Mo Williams that gave our first grade class an opportunity to read several of his books. We started making text to text connections with some of our favorite characters who showed up in several of his books, like pigeon. The next author we began studying in December was Jan Brett. A woman author who has very specific art work styles and lots of characters that are animals who show up in several books as well. We made many text to text connections with Jan Brett Books, especially the setting is always outside and usually in the winter.
