Ms. Hally’s 1st grade class received the book Making Cents by Elizabeth Keeler Robinson. After reading the book to the class, the students sent a thank you note to Mrs. Keeler-Robinson. Much to their surprise, Mrs. Keeler-Robinson wrote back and shared how her daughters had trouble telling one coin from the other and that’s how she came up with the idea for the Making Cents book.
The students were surprised to hear from the author and were very excited to write her back. The students used the writing process to write her questions like: do you really have a lemon tree in your backyard, do you have money tree, did your daughters raised money with a lemonade stand? Mrs. Keeler-Robinson e-mailed her response and posted a special message on her website. The students loved seeing that Mrs. Keeler-Robinson wrote about them on her website. You can see it too!
