This week we all chose to make bookmarks about Lilly’s Purple Plastic Purse. If you’d like to know what this story is about, just ask a firstie!
Let's talk about a good book! Mrs. William's has been visiting classrooms from Kindergarten to Second grade to model and teach the importance of book talks.
