As a review of biography, a celebration of President’s Day, and for fun, I read Maira Kalman’s Looking at Lincoln to fourth grade. Afterward each kid picked a favorite fact to write and share.
If you look close, you can see I cited the book. Visible, present citations is one of my new pushes.

Make Your Mark.
Have you read Amy Krouse Rosenthal and Tom Lichtenheld’s Exclamation Mark? Wonderful. I read it to 5th grade for they get the jokes. Each kid got to pick a way s/he makes his mark. Fun. Yes, the book was checked out during the first class after I posted them.
