Did you know September 16 is Collect Rocks Day? Me, neither! (And really, isn’t every day a good day to collect rocks?) Agates are my favorite—what’s yours?
To celebrate, check out my readaloud of A Rock Can Be at https://youtu.be/xBuJ1Fys-9M
And on my page for the book, I have a teaching guide plus links to other activities, like a cool rock unit from Andy Plemmons.
[My Classroom Connections posts share a way to connect one of my books or poems to a classroom topic–often something timely that you might be covering in the next month or so. Please share this post if you have educator friends who might be interested–thanks!]

Laura, I love all three of your books in this series! They’re great read-a-louds and can lead to a science lesson, or a science poetry lesson, or an art/craft lesson for younger children.
