South Anna is Super!
I have to thank the PTA, the Principal and Assistant Principal, Bridgett Alford, Kathy Green, Lara Ivey and the amazing students at South Anna Elementary for one of the best school visits EVER! I was so welcomed by this great school and I met the nicest, smartest students. We had great fun with the Alphabet Lady, rocked with Alfie the Apostrophe, and had an amazing Punctuation Bee with the 4th and 5th graders - congratulations to Mary (the winner) and all the participants.
And here's a great tip - one of the third grade classes told me that to celebrate National Punctuation Day they made cookies of different punctuation marks, but could only eat one after making a sentence using the mark. How clever and fun is that???!!! (that last mark is called and interrobang).
And by the way...I hope to hear from some of the budding writers!
