Virtual field trip to Michigan farm

books by robbyn smithThe 2nd grade JLE RTI group that meets with Mrs. Skoda enjoyed a Skype session with Michigan-based author Robbyn Smith and illustrator Gijsbert van Frankenhuyzen (people call him Nick!). This comes after the students read four books by the duo and did some reading comprehension with study guides.

The class was able to take a virtual field trip to ask the authors questions about their books as well as the farm on which many of their stories are based. The students were absolutely enthralled with the experience and did not want it to end!
