  2. Thank you so much for sharing this video. Thought I'd watch parts, but was captivated by all of it. So happy to hear the question from a fellow third grade teacher at the very end, and the response and question from Kate DiCamillo. Can't wait to share this gifted author's work with my new crop of third graders!
