Harry Potter may look long, but they need to be that long for that much good information. They are really not that bad. I am reading the 7th and I really like it. J. K. Rowling is awesome.They are about a famous boy wizard who deafeated You Know Who( you'll find out who that is)when he a baby. The books tell about his adventures with his friends at his school.

I think everyone should read the Percy Jackson Series, talk about a great read! It follows Percy, a demigod (find the meaning by reading) who goes on mythical and epic adventourous. You NEED to read this!

I think ALL the Peg Kehret books are good! One of her books, (my favorite of them all) is on next years Mark Twain list. The book is called Stolen Children. If you like that book, you will like all her books. Alot of kids in my class say that she is their favorite author. And with me that is SO true!!

We Are Off And Running

We are entering our 2nd full week of school and I have seen each class two times. So far we have reviewed our Missouri Reading Award Programs, checked out for the first time, learned how to access digital materials at home, set up Google Classrooms, and become familiar with Overdrive ebooks.  Mrs. Haynes met with each class before their second checkout (first with their classroom teacher) and chatted with the kiddos about checkout expectations and a couple of other new things she is working on.  She is so good about being proactive instead of reactive to what we know happens each year in our library.
Tomorrow each grade level will begin their first maker unit.  These units will include inquiry, mini lessons as necessary to teach/review note-taking, selecting best sources, questioning, citing sources, locating materials in our library and on our website, and instruction/exploration on databases and apps we will be using.

This is our plan...
Fifth graders are designers and will begin worki…

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…
