Author, Aaron Reynolds visits Shabbona in October, 2010!

Aaron Reynolds presented a Chicks and Salsa assembly for 1st and 2nd grade students.  Mr. Reynolds read the story and students assisted him in making salsa.  Students also had the opportunity to enjoy the salsa!

3rd and 4th grade students participated in a Joey Fly, Private Eye assembly about graphic novels. Students learned about the multiple steps in publishing a book and the difficult task of working with an illustrator that the author has never met.  Students tried their hand at creating a character. The authors and illus
trators, while
working together, were unable to talk!  It was a challenge!
