I think every student should read the Ember series. I think that they should read the whole series because it's adventures. The Ember cities are really a really really unique series by how it's written. I really like how everything happens like a new adventure and challenge for them!

I think every student should read City of Ember before they leave Lewis and Clark. It's a fantastic book that I couldn't put down. Many people must agree with me because it was made into a movie. I'm looking forward to seeing the movie... I usually always like the book better than the movie. I wonder if that will be the case this time.

I think every student in Lewis and Clark should read Counting on Grace. Because it takes place in about the 1800's about a girl (Grace) who works at a cotton mill at the age of fourteen, which was illegal at the time without the "proper papers". It's very interesting once you really get in to it. That's what happens with every book I read, and it should for you to. So keep reading on readers!

You have made some great book suggestions for 3rd, 4th, and 5th graders at LC. I hope that you will find one you haven't read and try it out! You never know, it may end up being your new favorite book.

I think every student should read IQ by Roland Smith. It is very exciting to read and keeps you on your toes as you turn every page. It's about a boy named Q that is the son of a famous rock band with Q's mom and his new step-dad and step-sister. Q and Angela or step-sister go on a secret mission.

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…

Fourth Grade Makers: Catapults

For the past couple of years, my 4th graders have started the year with a catapult inquiry project. Each time we work through this unit, I learn something new to improve my students learning.  This year we focused more on planning our ideas and building prototypes (they really just want to go in the MakerSpace and begin making) but we really talked about the benefit of planning.  Using the Launch Cycle Design Model, we are working through the steps to help us build a successful catapult.
We looked at the plans for our newest school addition to reinforce why the planning process is so important and the details that are required for a successful project.



The planning and design process was taken very seriously!

Working in the MakerSpace during the planning process to see what materials are available for their builds.  

A prototype and the plan!

This year I am being a stickler about requiring the kids to build from their plan and not veer off course.  Some tweaks may be necessary but they nee…
