At Shugart, reaching out and interacting with our community is very important to us. We love author visits. While recent times may have limited in person visits, we are versatile. We have shifted our efforts to include more virtual author visits. One such visit is scheduled for Thursday, November 18. Mrs. DeGuzman's first grade class will enjoy a live, virtual visit with author Javier Garay. In this book, Garay covers many important topics including geography, note taking and science. There is even a challenge at the end of the book. The author challenges readers to tape cardstock in a circular, triangular or square fashion. Afterwards, the reader will stack books on top to see which shape is the strongest. We can not wait to enjoy this live presentation. Let's support this author like he supports our students. The book, The Blocks Come Out at Night, can be purchased on Amazon.
