Tyler Whitesides Author of Janitors Visits the Third Grade at Art City Elementary SchoolPublished by julia.murray on Sun, 10/07/2012 - 18:58
The first week of school Mckell Murdock's third-grade class did an author study on Tyler Whitesides the author of the book Janitors. We started reading his book Janitors as a class read-a-loud. Janitors is about a young boy, Spencer, who finds out his school is full of magical creatures (toxites) that inhibit the childrens' learning. Miss Murdock's class is really liking this book so far!
While we were doing our author study, Tyler Whitesides actaully stopped by our class! He talked to us about writing and even read part of his book to us! It was so fun to meet him and hear his crazy voices as he read aloud!
