I was very excited to be able to attend the TLA conference
that was here in Houston.
Aside from learning lots of great ideas from classes,
meeting lots of great people,
getting good deals on great books, having books signed by great authors...
Wait, did I say authors?
One day, I attended the Bluebonnet luncheon and I got to hear
Tom Angleberger, the author of
The Strange Case of Origami Yoda.
He was an amazing speaker. He even taught us to make our very own Origami Yoda!
Here is his picture that I got from the TLA website.
He is showing us how to fold our Origami Yoda with his giant paper.
In case you haven't read them - here are his fun, fun, fun, books!
Oh... I also had an extra lucky day...
I won a super-great, very-useful, and totally unexpected door prize!
Thank you Scholastic for the wonderful books, dvds, audiobooks, and student bracelets!
