D.E.A.R. A Success!

Thank you Moberly, for making Drop Everything And Read such a success!

We read all over the school. We read funny books and chapter books, fact books and picture books!

Moberly LOVES to READ!

D.E.A.R. Moberly! Let’s get reading!

D.E.A.R. Moberly

This Thursday the whole school will be celebrating Drop Everything and Read at 1:00pm! This means, you can find any classroom (or the big gym or library), any friends and read any book with them!

D.E.A.R. was first invented by Beverly Cleary, author of the Ramona books, who had Ramona’s classroom often participate in Drop Everything and Read. To pay tribute to Beverly, schools all across North America celebrate the event on her birthday, April 12th. This year, we will participate on Thursday, as April 12th was a Sunday!

Look forward to reading with YOU!

DEAR

Graphic Novel Author Visit

Moberly’s Division 4 and 7 are working in the Library on a Graphic Novels Unit. In Feb. we had the opportunity to meet with Dan Bar-el, an award winning author of fiction, picture books and now graphic novels. He taught us many great ideas, like why we would use a bird’s eye view, how to create drama in our stories using only art, how to draw expressions and much more. We look forward to using everything we learned to create our own Graphic Novels!
