***Late Breaking News***
As students were finishing their author study, Mrs. Sulmonte happened to meet Jan Brett at a nearby restaurant. She shared that her first grade students were doing an author study on her. After hearing about their project, Jan Brett went home and returned with a signed piece of artwork that reads, "for Angela's class~ Dear Rockland first graders, Happy Reading! This is the turtle I painted in my video! Love you! Jan" What an amazing coincidence!
