Andrea Beaty, author of Rosie Revere, Engineer and Iggy Peck, Architect and many other books for Kindergarten through middle school reading, entertained the primary grades at Patton today, brought to us by the Patton PTA and the AHML! She read from both books, pointing out some of the connections between the characters and challenging students to find more. She also told the students a little about the inspiration for Rosie, the real Rosie the Riveter. Patton's Kindergarten, first and second graders impressed the author with their insightful questions and excitement.
My Reading List!
I am the Library Media Center director at Patton School in Arlington Heights where I help students from kindergarten through 5th grade find terrific independent reading for enjoyment and information, and teach students the skills to use information and technology safely and productively and to connect, communicate and share with others. I have four grown children, a large black dog, (flat coat retriever) and a small striped cat. I am an obessive Chicago Cubs fan and I love to run.
