Steve Cotler, author of the Cheesie Mack series, visited third through fifth grade Roadrunners on November 18.  He taught the students that every word on a page has a purpose and is meant to be read. He also shared the importance of being reading detectives by looking for clues the author gives them.  They focused on learning as much as they could about the main character, Cheesie, and his best friend, Georgie, by only reading two pages from the book. Mr. Cotler finished his visit by telling a thrilling tale of a camping adventure that had the students laughing hysterically!  Autographed copies of his books will be sent home very soon.  :)

We have been so lucky to have not one, but TWO authors visit our Reading Roadrunners in the past few weeks!

Joe Cundiff, author of Fly to the Moon on a Witch’s Broom, visited with the Kindergarten through 2nd grade classes on October 30 to share his story and tell about how his book became a reality.
