Book Review- Ray and Me


In Ray and Me, by Dan Gutman, Stosh goes back on another exciting adventure to 1920!
There he meets some famous people like Babe Ruth, Tris Speaker, and even Harry Houdini.
His mission is to save Ray Chapman, the only person in major league baseball to die in a game.
Stosh's head stings a little bit (and that might be exaggerating) after he gets hit with a ball in the head. He brings his own batting helmet along for the ride.( Helmets hadn't been invented yet). But Tris Speaker laughed his head off when Stosh showed Ray the helmet and busted it up! Now what will Stosh do? Read Ray and Me by Dan Gutman to find out!

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…
