Author Visit

December 14, 2017 - Students in Grades 4, 5, 6, and 8 had the opportunity to meet Steve "The DirtmeisterĀ®" Tomecek at today's Author Visit. Mr. Tomecek shared his fascination with science and fossils along with his skills as an author - 'Dig Into Reading' focuses on the nonfiction writing process including selecting a topic, doing research and creating an outline. He usesĀ  some of the books that he has written for National Geographic as examples of different types of non-fiction books... plus he brings a bunch of cool rocks, minerals and fossils (including actual dino bones) for the kids to check out.
