You know the routine… parents ask “What did you do in school today?” and kids respond, “Oh, nothing.” Well, hopefully today, students went home and didn’t respond with a nothing. We listened and watched carefully as astronaut Nicole Stott read a Dr.Seuss book to us in a live webcast from NASA. The event was in honor of Read Across America and Stott shared information with us about how reading is important, no matter what your job in life may be. We had the privilege of viewing the webcast from the SMARTBoard in our classroom. It lasted about one hour and Stott is about to head off to live on the International Space Station for 4 to 6 months. What will she pack for this long trip? Lots of books to read, of course.
