Author's Celebration

Grace and the rest of her class have worked very hard throughout the year on writing and they each wrote and illustrated a book which Mrs. Snyder published.  Today we celebrated their hard work with an Author's Celebration.  Parents were invited and Mrs. Snyder presented each student with their published book and a certificate.  Grace wrote a book titled The Monster (you can read it here) and dedicated it to Zachary.  We are so very proud of her!

Mrs. Snyder is an awesome teacher!  In science, they learned all about baby ducks and chicks.  As you know, they had several chicks to hatch but none of their duck eggs made it.  Because Mrs. Snyder is such a great teacher and loves her kids so much, she went and bought 3 baby ducks and has set up a habitat in their room so the kids can watch and learn hands on all about the ducks.  They are going to keep them for as long as they can.  It's allot of extra work on Mrs. Snyder because she has to change out their water each day and make sure they are getting plenty of food and swim time.  I met her up at the school on Sunday and brought a baby pool and helped her set up the pen for them.  They are sooo cute!  The kids named them today and they are Sunny, Quackers and Sleepy.

Oh! I want to go to that school, with that teacher too. Imagine having ducks in the class room??? I still remember many of my early teachers, and everyone of them was one that made an impact on my life.
