In Tara’s 2nd grade Writers’ Studio (7 & 8 years old), Sara is carrying the book, Have you Seen Trees? (Oppenheim 1995) as Taylor is working with an iPad. Sara tells other students to go away who try to enter into the conversation. She tells them she needs some quiet time with her assistant, Taylor.
