Book Review-Nancy Drew: Sleight of Dan

I reviewed Nancy Drew-Sleight of Dan. The authors are Stefean Petrucha and Sarah Kinney. This is the first GRAPHIC NOVEL that I have ever read.

Tina is missing! Dan does a magic trick on Tina that makes her disappear. Dan tries to get Tina back, but can't. You have to read the book to find more clues to help you solve where Tina went.

I would rate this book a 5 out of 5 stars because the book is a mystery and I like mysteries. I think this book is for third and fourth graders.

Melanie~I have started reading many graphic novels, but I have to admit I never seem to finish them. I guess I don't like to read the graphic format. However, you didn't write your review so just I would read your wrote it for kids and I know a lot of kids will LOVE to read your graphic novel. Thanks for writing a great review!

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…
