The Ghosts of Mercy Manor by Betty Ren Wright

Eleven-year-old foster child (Gwen) is dreading to go and live in the Mercy Manor. But, when she does, she appreciates everything going on... (Except the fact, that her new beloved home is in fact haunted with a replay of a crime that was committed over thirty years ago!!!)
Gwen tells anyone that will listen. Though it's hard to do if no one believes you! With all her family not believing her (Except her younger sister Tessie) and "not wanting to hear another word." They think it's best for her to move out! But Gwen knows she must help this ghost!

Can Gwen solve the crime?

Can she convince her family to let her stay?

And can she save her family in the process?

Read the "Charming and daring novel that will keep you hooked until the very last page" and 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…
