Hello Everyone!

Welcome to my new Katie Kazoo, Switcheroo website! Here you'll find everything you need to be a super member of the Katie Kazoo Classroom Crew, like ideas to use my switcheroo stories with your class, games and activities, and all the latest news about me and my friends at Cherrydale Elementary School. I've worked really hard on this site, so I hope the magic wind doesn't come and change it into some other kind of website. Just kidding. You know the magic wind only blows around me!

If you've read some of the Katie Kazoo, Switcheroo books, then you know that I get a lot of great ideas. Wait until you see the ones I came up with for my website. I think they're my best ideas yet!

For starters, you can get the inside scoop on all my adventures in The Books section. You'll even find suggested related themes for each title and a cool checklist so your students can check off each book they read. Reading The Books section will make you a lot like one of my best friends, Suzanne Lock. She always knows everything!

If you really want to become an expert on all things Katie Kazoo, you should read About the Author, Nancy Krulik. That's where you'll find an interview with Nancy, who writes all the Katie Kazoo, Switcheroo books. She knows more about me than anyone. She also knows a lot about reading, and has written A Note to Teachers and Librarians to share her thoughts with you.

After you read the note from Nancy Krulik, check out the page Katie Kazoo All Year Through. That's where you can find ideas to use the books about me in all sorts of themed lesson plans, every month of the year!

Check out the Character Counts section to see the many things I'm learning as I grow up. Things about friendship and responsibility and seeing the world through other people's eyes (literally)! I've been through a lot and I bet the kids you know have been through some of it, too–minus the whole magic wind part, of course.

If you're searching for fun things to make and do, head to the Printables area of my site. Just one click of your mouse and–switcheroo–you're face-to-face with lots of cool Katie Kazoo activities and official Crew stuff. You'll have a lot of fun there!

After finding all this exciting (and educational!) stuff about me, I bet you have some teacher friends that want to join the Katie Kazoo Classroom Crew, too! As a member of the Crew, you'll receive email blasts when something new is added to this site and offers for FREE and cool new materials to use with your students.

Anyway, that's all for now. Thanks for visiting my website. I hope you have fun. And come back again soon, okay?

Your Pal,
