A reading by the author
Emma's class has been working on becoming authors. They started by writing about small moments that make up a day, little significant moments that they remember. They were to expand one of these small memories and fill in all of the details that made up that moment. For their reading they chose one of their favorites from their books. Emma chose a time when we were buying her a pair of new shoes at Target and she was able to get a new pair of jeggings (which was quite significant to her, as Sadie already had a pair). Notice the illustrations on her book cover referring to the moment she chose to read out loud.
First graders are awesome.
