  1. What a great twist for your class. I bet they really enjoyed picking out the books and deciding which one to assign to YOU! I know that when I was in elementary I would have loved it for the roles to be swapped if only just for a few minutes, but our teachers were always to be telling us what to do that never happened. I can already tell that you really know how to connect with your class! How great 🙂
