We are in writing mode at this moment in my classroom, so it's the perfect opportunity for me to do my writing as well! We have settled back into our routines after our winter break; that means reading and read-aloud time with my students. This week, we were very excited to find out that one of our favorite books, This Is Not My Hat by Jon Klassen, won the Caldecott Award! The Caldecott is given for the best illustrations in a children's book, and we agree that this book deserved the award. If you haven't read this book yet, or Klassen's first solo book, Where Is My Hat?, then run to your library or bookstore and check them out!
