Something super lucky happened to
me my students last week! The Parent Teacher Group at my school plans an silent auction each year. Each classroom creates a themed basket for the auction. It is one of our only fundraisers for the year. With the help of my fabulous parents, my class created a "reading themed" basket. The basket included books, reading games, gift certificates to a local book store, a Kindle Fire and a visit from a real author for the winning classroom. Turns out the parents in my class must be as competitive as little old me...because one of my amazing parents was the highest bidder on our classroom basket. As a result, I was lucky enough to arrange our special author visit!
Maria Dismondy came to visit my students in our classroom last week! Maria is the author of three amazing books. If you are looking for books to use for character education, team building or empowering students to do the right thing you should consider her books. Each of her books contains a powerful message for young people and a reminder for adults as well. I highly recommend all three of her books and can't wait to read her next book!
