  1. I will be checking out the curious George facebook site. My kiddos love him. I would love the book I have the other one but not this one.

  2. “The Day the Crayons Quit” was my favorite lesson last year and my students were completely enthralled with that book. I cannot wait to build a lesson off the sequel! I love the Janitor of the Year award. What a fantastic way to honor one of the most important (yet frequently overlooked) people in our school community!

  3. I like the Janitor of the Year Award. Janitors are such a necessary part of schools. We could not run without them. This is a great way to make them feel appreciated for what they do.

  4. I am going to participate in the Janitor of the Year award. The janitor at our school is amazing, and always goes above and beyond for our students!
