Greenfield Elementary

button Greenfield Elementary School is just outside Saratoga, NY, and I had the chance to visit there for two days last week. Despite some unusually warm early-June weather, we had a great time. (It didn’t hurt that I was in the only air-conditioned room in the school. I’m sure the kids would have been happy to spend the day getting dental work done if they could have done it in the Media Center.)

I’m not sure exactly what’s going on here, but I think someone may have asked about the chickens we have at our house.

projects My visit at Greenfield was part of the school’s annual Author’s Day celebration, and the halls were filled with all sorts of writing and art pieces. It was really an incredible site, and the work was fantastic.

Before I arrived, the many of the students had the chance to work on some Gloria & Frieda / Absolutely Not projects, and on the second day, I worked one-on-one with the fifth grades to design maps for their stories. There were some great ideas and an awful lot of talent in those classes.

Thanks to Carol Godette, Jennifer Gould, the principal, Mr. Mike Hewitt, and all the people who made Author Day happen. It was a blast!
