When we created our Classroom Libraries, we knew it needed to be packaged in the most “teacher-friendly” way possible. That’s why our books come pre-labeled and pre-sorted!

Preparing Classroom Libraries takes a whole team of people; check out our latest Company Culture blog post to meet some of the faces that save you time: https://hexagrammbooks.com/blogs/companyculture/our-holiday-tradition-bundle-palooza

Introducing Megan (she/her), our Business Manager! Originally drawn to Atlanta for its diverse population as well as the abundant school and career opportunities, Megan graduated from Georgia State University with a Bachelor’s in Business Administration with a focus on HR.

She's been with us for almost 3 years and keeps us running like a well oiled machine! We rely on Megan for a little bit of everything: sales, accounting, customer service, all things administrative…

From Megan about her role at Hexagramm:
“My favorite part about my job is creating meaningful professional relationships with my colleagues. Human resources is what I am most passionate about, and to me, that means doing whatever I can to help when it concerns the wellbeing of the company, of course, but also the wonderful people who keep it alive.”

Outside of work, Megan spends her time learning American Sign Language (making her trilingual - she speaks English and German too!), fostering dogs from local rescues, and baking.

Thank you Megan, for wearing so many hats at Hexagramm and wearing them well. We appreciate you!

With supply chain issues affecting all industries, we know how special it is to be able to place an order and receive it quickly. That's why we're taking a new approach to #LatestLists. They're made up of books that we have plenty of stock of, so that we can ship them out as soon as your order is placed!

Latest Lists are lists of books that share a common element; it could be an instructional purpose, such as mentor texts, book clubs, or informational research projects. They can also be geared towards specific uses such as during counseling sessions or when in the media center. Latest Lists could be newest releases around a particular theme, or a current topic that many teachers will want to present.

We made it through another week! For today's #FeatureFriday, we're sharing "Mi papi tiene una moto" by Isabel Quintero. Everyday, when Daisy's father comes home from his construction job 👷‍♂️, he takes her for a ride on his motorcycle 🏍️. As soon as she hears him pull into the driveway, she runs outside with both their helmets and he puts hers on carefully, making sure not to pull her hair with the straps. As they zoom 💨 around the neighborhood, Daisy sees the people 🚶‍♂️ and places 🏠she's always known, but also realizes her community is rapidly changing around her. But as the sun sets purple-blue-gold behind Daisy Ramona and her papi, she knows that the love she feels will always be there 💜💙💛

For the first #FeatureFriday of 2021, we chose a ✨Novelty✨ title from the thematic read aloud set "Growing Older and... Wiser?". Novelty books are ones that were originally written in a language other than English or Spanish. They give teachers the opportunity to introduce books to their students for the very first time (i.e., it's highly unlikely that students are already familiar with the title). This fosters student engagement while tapping into the highest quality children's literature from around the world.

"Cuando sea mayor" is by Belgian author Francesco Pittau. In the story, the boy can't wait to be older so that he can do all the things adults do: grow armpit hair, say bad words, and have a girlfriend... but he soon realizes that he'll also have to work, wear glasses, and lose his teeth! The humorous and relatable story reminds students that with freedom comes responsibility, and life should be lived one day at a time.

Changing leaves 🍂 and a cool fall breeze 💨 mean... It's soup season! Today's #FeatureFriday: ¡Gracias, Omu!, written and illustrated by Oge Mora, is overflowing with vibrant collage artwork. The story celebrates Omu's generosity as she shares her delicious stew 🍲 with each and every neighbor who is drawn to her house by its incredible smell 👃. She's so generous, that come dinnertime, Omu doesn't have any stew left for herself... until her neighbors reflect the kindness 💞 she has shown them.

Teachers, we thank you for all of your hard work, today on #WorldTeachersDay, and everyday. 👨‍🏫 🍎 👩‍🏫
. . .
“In this crisis, teachers have shown, as they have done so often, great leadership and innovation in ensuring that #LearningNeverStops, that no learner is left behind. Around the world, they have worked individually and collectively to find solutions and create new learning environments for their students to allow education to continue. Their role advising on school reopening plans and supporting students with the return to school is just as important.”
