Books Mrs. Rosheim Has Been Reading!


Wow! I have been a reading machine...I am busy reading any books illustrated by Laura Huliska-Beith (she will be at Lewis and Clark on May 8 to visit with all kindergarten, first, and second grade students), I am currently trying to read all of the 2009-2010 KC3 Nominees ( I just finished, Remembering Mrs. Rossi and LOVED it-what a powerful book about families), and I am trying to read tons of the new books that have just arrived in our library. What great fun!

Mrs. Haynes said that I absolutely could not just see the movie, The Tale of Despereaux, but I had to read the book. Boy, was she right. I loved the writing style of this book. Especially when the author would talk directly to me as a reader. This is a must read for all readers!

It is my hope that you to are experiencing the joy that good books can bring to your life.

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…
