We are excited to announce our October and November picks for our Star Academy Family Book Club featuring Kate Messner! Here's a little about Kate from her blog:

This month, you can choose any of Kate's books before our meeting on November 18th at 6:30 PM. Kate has many chapter books to choose from, and a fabulous picture book! We will also be having a Skype with Kate on November 14th and you will have a chance to order her books in advance. For our book club, just read any of her books (or even more than one!) before the meeting and come ready to talk and share. It's a ton of fun! You can sign up by clicking here

Here's a video of Kate sharing her current reads and reading Over and Under the Snow!

September #noofficedays

I'm loving my Mondays and being out of the office and in classrooms with teachers and kids. September has been CRAZY BUSY and although I have definitely been out of my office each Monday, I've gotten behind on blogging about it. So, this week's post includes some highlights from the past few weeks. My biggest takeaway so far is that our kids and teachers are awesome!

I'm also loving AudioBoom, a new tool for me that allows me to record what kids have to say and have it posted right away. Check out what our kids have to say!
