Ginjer Clarke Wows Ridge

author with audienceThanks to support from the PTA our whole school got to meet the awesome author Ginjer Clarke!  We spent the last few weeks reading her books during library and language arts time.  It was a real treat to hear how a real author works.  Fourth and fifth grades even got to do a little writing with her.  We all learned some really cool facts about animals.
