Page Turners

Page Turners is a book club for 3rd, 4th, and 5th grade students at Lewis and Clark School in Liberty, Missouri. Our 2nd grade students have been invited to join us beginning March 18th. We are a group of kids and teachers who love to read. We meet every Wednesday morning and most of the time we simply read...what a concept. No book reports or dioramas here:). Sometimes we blog, talk about the books we are reading, recommend great books, but mostly we just get comfy and read. We enjoy books, newspapers, comic books, graphic novels, magazines, and anything else we desire.

I love page turners because some kids dont get to read at home because they get disracted and Page turners lets you come early and READ without and distractions and sometimes you can go to book blog and chat to other kids about the AWESOME book you are reading and encourage them to read that book as well. I am so gald I do page turners. I hope they have something like that in middle school!

Dash Fashion Show

Earlier this Spring, my 2nd graders added a little creative flair to our robotics unit...we decked Dash out in the latest fashions!  The kids put their designs on paper, created patterns out of newspaper, and then worked on their final projects.   What a fun way to end our robotics  study.

Adopt A Shelf

Each year the members of our Page Turner's book club adopt a shelf to take care of throughout the year.  The kids pick a shelf and we take a "shelfie" and post their photo on the shelf they claimed.  This group REALLY helps keep the shelves organized and looking good.  Plus each student gets to highlight the books from their shelf. 
Here are a few of our "shelfies".


The Making Of An Elementary MakerSpace

So much has happened at Lewis and Clark since the end of May.  The library received a grant from the Liberty School District Foundation in the amount of nearly $8,000.00 to be spent on creating a MakerSpace.  Since being awarded that grant, my brain has not shut off.  I have been busy planning for great experiences, purchasing materials, and getting donations for our MakerSpace!
I knew that we needed a MakerSpace when I didn't have the resources my students needed and wanted during Genius Hour.  
Our MakerSpace will be located in the reading resource room in the library.  It will be very easy to access everything we need when we need it!  This is what the room has looked like at various stages during the summer months.

 Mrs. Carey and I relocated all the books in the picture below and our fabulous custodial staff has cleared out everything else.  

I was fortunate to find 3 shelves hanging around storage closets that will now be used in the space.  Thanks to Mrs. Carey for uncover…
