Last week, Tuckahoe’s first-grade students Skyped with children’s book author, Jonathan Emmett, in his home near Nottingham, England. Mr. Emmett read them his book, “The Princess and the Pig,” a modern fairy tale. Library media specialist Laurie Verdeschi asked Mr. Emmett to Skype with her students because her students have enjoyed so many of his books and because “The Princess and the Pig” was listed in the new ELA Common Core first grade fairy tale genre. After they read aloud, students asked the author questions they wrote during library class.
The Tuckahoe PTO will be having its annual Mother’s Day Plant Sale from 8 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. on Thursday, May 8, and Friday, May 9, on the school’s front lawn.
