Student Publishing Award

My second grade class at Roosevelt Elementary, created a video book and won first place in the Time For Kids Student Publishing Award Contest. "Mrs. Wishy Washy Goes to the Zoo" demonstrates my integration of technology with language arts, art, and student publishing. In June of 2002, I traveled to Washington DC to receive the award. Jonathan Rosenbloom, Time for Kids Editor in Chief, made a special visit to Roosevelt in the fall of 2002.
