our room is wrapped in authors and illustrators

In the words or Ann Marie Corgill...
"now that our self-portraits are hung, our room is wrapped in writers."
These self-portraits are a daily reminder of the most important people in my classroom and the hard work, ideas and thinking that goes into them being readers and writers.
This project was inspired by 
Ann Marie Corgill.
Read this book to learn and grow as a teacher of writing.
Check out several years 
of self-portraits HERE.

David Biedrzycki Beetles

David Biedrzycki visited our school and 
shared his newest book...
He also showed us how he creates his illustrations on his computer...
We were inspired by his presentation and his book...
We made our own "David Biedrzycki Beetles"...
