Skype Chat with Tom Angleberger

My students are huge fans of the Origami Yoda series and when I taught in The Bahamas, we did an amazing Skype call with him. I figured he was too busy and famous now to talk to us, but I was wrong. Every Thursday, he has Skype calls with schools, and it is obvious, because he is a master at getting kids excited.

Tom asked the kids for their book recommendations and gave a few of his own, showed us how to fold our own Origami Yodas, and gave us a sneak preview of the new book,  Princess Labelmaker to the Rescue. The students were screaming with excitement and were so grateful after the call. 

It was a memorable and happy end to our semester.
