Minnesota Here I Come!

Earlier this school year, my Media Specialist and I were contacted by children's book author Pamela Duncan Edwards and illustrator Henry Cole about presenting a session with them at the International Reading Association Conference this year. They have visited Chets Creek a couple of times and love the Book of the Month work that we do as much as we love them! Our proposal was accepted and we will be presenting a symposium on next Thursday afternoon at the 2009 IRA Conference in Minneapolis, Minnesota. As always, we will be blogging the conference "live" on the Live From The Creek blog and can't wait to bring back all the incredible things we learn about Reading while attending the conference. Be sure to check in on our adventures as we head to the mid west!

I can't wait to follow you through the blog. (Hopefully you will have internet at the conference.)

Remember the fried cheese curds and walleye...Norwegians are such weird people. I hope you get some time to have a little fun. The Mall of America is cool, and the zoo is awesome.

Please tell PDE and HC that they are my all-time favorite guests.

Peace,

T-Cubed who denies even being near the Walk on Friday night!!!

Let's see, will you spend more time at the conference or the mall? Truthfully, other than Ms. Fosnot or the late Mr. Van de Walle, (you know where my heart is)I can't think of two authors/illustrators I'd rather spend a conference with. Have fun and keep up the blog.

They are my favorite author and illustrator. I can't wait to hear how everything goes. Tell them that Chets says Hi!

I can't wait to hear all about the conference. Please tell Pamela and Henry that we all look forward to them coming back to Chets SOON! I hope the two of you have a great time. See you soon.
