I hope everyone is healthy and safe as we start Week 3 of our home learning. Keep up with what your teachers are sending home, and build time in to self-care as well. Take breaks between classwork and make sure to be reading a great book!
One of the things you could do this week is write a letter to an author. The hashtag #BooksConnectus has been making its rounds, and many children's authors are sharing their addresses, so that students may write to them. A number of them have been collected at Reading Connects Us so check out the list of authors there.
Another way to connect with authors is through Teachingbooks.net who are offering their content for free until September. They have lots of videos of authors taking about their books or their craft and even have some read alouds.
Hope these websites are helpful and fun.
