Mrs. Bates received a grant from the Nebo Foundation to purchase a new series of books for her classroom.  Here is what Mrs. Bates had to say:

Larsen Elementary–Patti Bates
“I received a grant through the Nebo Foundation and have purchased a high quality, early literature series to get students excited about reading.  This series of book builders has been highly recommended.  It will allow developing readers to connect with and study the characters Bella and Rosie during the many levels first graders are expect to transition through.  I plan to use the class pack during guided reading to reinforce higher level thinking skills for readers. The Bella and Rosie Collection will be available in my classroom library for individual readers to read and write book reviews. The book reviews will encourage their classmates to read books from the series. A big thank you from Mrs. Bates' First Grade Class,” said Patti Bates, first-grade teacher at Larsen Elementary.
