A traveling book seller (I guess that is what they are called...) brought in a BIG pack of Elmer books and a tote the other day- the colors drew me in like a moth to a flame. I'm a sucker for a good marketing ploy. Anywho, I was totally stoked when I found out we would be using Elmer in our ELA block. SO..... we decided to make the connection last using it in our social studies block as well.
In the words of one of my favorite stars, Lavar from Reading Rainbow... "You don't have to take my word for it" this is how it all went down in the words of a firstie! (great handwriting, huh?)\
Enjoy the (colorful) Journey!
