Raina Telgemeier Day was a HUGE success! Raina captivated the audience with her interesting and dynamic presentation. She made child after child SMILE during the book signing. I will ask my students to reflect on the experience throughout the week. I'll add their comments to the end of this blog post. For now, I hope you enjoy looking at photographs and vine videos from the event.
Cupcakes + 2 cakes = an incredible creation
The dessert table is always a big hit with my students.
This is what Raina saw as she entered the building.
Raina drew during the Q&A.
