Jane continues to have fun with school and library visits in Washington. After her presentation, enthusiastic 4th an 5th graders write and illustrate the beginning of their travel logs.

For the second year, Dani Booth, an English Learners teacher at Steamboat Springs high school in Colorado, used Dear Class as a model for her students to research, write and illustrate a two-page entry about a country they visited to want to go to. Countries far afield from the ones Mrs. J visited include Honduras, Jamaica, Mexico, Russia, Saudi Arabia, South Korea, Sweden and Vietnam. Kudos to Dani and the students for being so creative. We love that the class found Mrs. J as an inspiration.
