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!!

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…
