My favorite book I have read this year is Time For Andrew because it is really cool how Drew(A boy from our time) saves Andrew ( Aboy from 1910) from diptheria and gets to be a boy in 1910 for a little while and when Drew returns to his own time he meets Andrew as an old man.

My favorite book is Moon Shadow. Because it is about horses and it's sorta adventures when the foal gets out two times and then they win a 5th place in the All Breeds Horse Show!It is wonderful in the ending when they see the foal will be healthy enough to live with her.

My favorite books are the Percy Jackson and the Olympians series by Rick Riordan. I think they are fantastic because they're hilarious and epic at the same time. I've finished all the books and I recommend them toevery kid every where.

My favorite book is still Moon Shadow I just love that book! Moon Shadow I think is adventures of a girl and wild mustangs. I think the most interesting part of her life is that she can keep the foal. After all of the troubles they let her keep the motherless wild mustang foal as her own. I also love it because it's about horses and I'm horse crazy!

I am reading the Blind Side. It's about this upper class southern family that finds this kid on the street and tries him out for football. He is so good that he gets a scholarship to the University of Mississippi and from there goes to the NFL. He now plays for the Baltimore Ravens.

We Are Off And Running

We are entering our 2nd full week of school and I have seen each class two times. So far we have reviewed our Missouri Reading Award Programs, checked out for the first time, learned how to access digital materials at home, set up Google Classrooms, and become familiar with Overdrive ebooks.  Mrs. Haynes met with each class before their second checkout (first with their classroom teacher) and chatted with the kiddos about checkout expectations and a couple of other new things she is working on.  She is so good about being proactive instead of reactive to what we know happens each year in our library.
Tomorrow each grade level will begin their first maker unit.  These units will include inquiry, mini lessons as necessary to teach/review note-taking, selecting best sources, questioning, citing sources, locating materials in our library and on our website, and instruction/exploration on databases and apps we will be using.

This is our plan...
Fifth graders are designers and will begin worki…

The Power of A Book

I recently finished the book, Appleblossom The Possum by Holly Goldberg Sloan (the author of Counting by 7's)  Let me start by saying I will read anything that H. G. Sloan writes.  What an amazing author!  Appleblossom is the sweetest little possum you ever did read about and she totally changed my feelings about possums.  They just don't seem quite so nasty anymore:).  Just look at that cute little possum waving to you on the cover below.  She was drawn by Holly Goldberg Sloan's husband, Gary A. Rosen.

I started reading this book on Monday and found myself headed back to school tonight (Wednesday) after dinner so I could find out what happened to sweet little Appleblossom in the "monster's house."  I have always thought that I didn't enjoy fictional animal books.  I may be the only person in the world who doesn't like Charlotte's Web.  I am beginning to wonder if it is because of the sadness I felt as a little girl when I read about Charlotte…
