Slice of Life Day 19

This week we are doing an author study and writing immersion unit on 'how writers work".  We are going to study Tomie dePaola, Helen Lester, Peter Reynolds, Daniel Kirk, and use their websites to learn about them.  I had fun doing research over the weekend, especially with Daniel Kirk's website.  I know they are going to love his quirky sketches of naughty snowmen and weird but cute aliens.  Looking forward to an interesting week of learning!


  1. I hope you will write a slice about all that your children glean from this study. It sounds fascinating.

  2. Sounds like fun I love author studies let us know how it goes.
