Woodway Whiz Kidz

This week I had the privilege of visiting Woodway Elementary School.

From our brainstorming sessions the students came up with wild and wooley ideas, from a hundred-legged giraffe to a bevy of butterflies; there were ninjas, (natch) and troupes of tromping T-Rex; Ms. Gregerson even ended up in a drawing as a parachutist.

Thanks, kids, for giving this author/ illustrator so much enthusiasm and for charging into our group stories, then diving into your awesome pictures with original thinking. Thank you, Mr. Goodwin, for cultivating a love of reading in your students.
