Hello IAA! <- Click this link
Things are a little bit different around here, and for the next few weeks we won’t be able to get together and see each other. That doesn’t mean that we’ll stop learning! I’ll be working on posting some read alouds and some short 1 minute book recommendations using a few different websites. Responses to Red Clover Read Alouds can be posted to this FlipGrid, Red Clover Nominees. I’ll be posting links here, and sending things to your parents email. Just because things will be different for a little bit, doesn’t mean that you should stop reading! Let me know what your reading with your own 1 minute book talk using the IAA Library Book Recommendations FlipGrid page (I’ll be sending the code to login to your families as well). Stay safe and healthy, and keep reading!
