Yesterday was our first day back from spring break. The students were quiet as they walked into the classroom and continued to be quiet as the day progressed. They seemed to be tired after a week of going to bed late and waking up late. I was tired! I had to force myself to get out of bed.
During spring break, I had the opportunity to visit the Scholastic headquarters in New York City. The Scholastic building is located in SoHo near some of the best shopping in New York City. Amelia, one of Scholastic hard workers and a good friend of mine, gave me a tour around the building. Something I did not know is that the Scholastic building includes a store that sells books and educational games. The store even allows children to celebrate their birthday there.
After surviving the freezing weather, it was well worth the hike to Scholastic. I have visited New York City several times and I was able to explore a new part of the city. I even got to shop for books!
