Phillippa Fisher's Fairy Godsister

Phillippa Fisher thinks she has the worst life ever. Her best friend Charlotte is moving away to a place where they are going to get rid of cell phones, computers...any technology! Also her parents are really embarrassing, like the day when her dad came to school in his pajamas! So a fairy godsister is all she could want. But when she gets nervous and accidently throws her out of the tree house window all Daisy, the fairy godsister wants to do is get her wishes made and finally get away from Phillippa.... but when Trisha, the popular girl steals her last wish voucher, they have to think of a good plan. Will Daisy get it back before her life cycle runs out?

This book is not available in our school library...try the public library or a bookstore!

The Power of A Book

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…
