An AFFL T-Shirt Presentation and Theme Song

Hello Fantasy Lovers,

Yesterday we were graced with an impromptu visit from a very special pseudo-member of AFFL.  Our namesake Mr. F chose to visit at the most perfect time that he possible could.  We had plans of storming into his room to do the following presentation, we didn’t need to, he came to us.

After the presentation tumult died down, two members calmed themselves and presented an AFFL theme song they had written over the track out break.

We also asked members to take pictures of themselves reading over break.  We only got a few pics, but more could come in soon.  Check them out.

An AFFL T-Shirt Design

Hello Fantasy Lovers,

I hope your track out break has gone well.  We are now just a week away from head back to school and two weeks away from our next AFFL meeting.

While you wait I thought you might like to take a look at our AFFL T-Shirt design.  The shirts are being produced as we speak and should be to school very soon.

So take a look, I think it came out just like we wanted.

Holy Bat House Batman

Hello Fantasy Lovers,

Now that we are about a week into our October track out break, I thought I would share some progress on my track out projects.  I mentioned at our last meeting that I was going to attempt a Silverwing project with my daughter.

Check out the video introduction by my daughter.

The one picture with my head a little cut off what taken by my three year old son.

So the next step is for all of the AFFL members to sign the Bat House and then we will find an appropriate location to hang the house and hopefully fill the night sky around our school with bug eating bats.

We also talked about our next read at that last meeting.  Lisa McMann‘s sequel to The Unwanteds, called the Island of Silence was the overwhelming choice.  Over track out members were to try and obtain the book and get started reading.  They were also charged with taking either video or pictures of them reading the book in strange and wonderful places.

I decided to take some pictures at the NC Museum of Art.  The art in the park section of the museum is one of my favorite stops during our track out breaks.

Here are some pictures of the bat house and me reading Island of Silence at the art museum.

I hope the break is going well for you all.
