Skyping it up this week!

On Thursday K-2 got the opportunity to skype with the author, Holly Surplice.  She read her book Guinea Pig Party.  The kids had a lot of fun listening to the story and asking her questions.  

There was also a special guest that came for a visit.  It was Cutie, Levi's guinea pig.   

We ended the celebration with cupcakes!

We also skyped with Ruth Spiro, the author of Lester Fizz, Bubble-Gum Artist on Friday.  This was a great way to end our bubble gum day celebration.  It was awesome to listen to the story and ask Ruth questions.
