An Angel for Soloman Singer

Soloman Singer lives a lonely, poor, dull life in a hotel room for men only in New York city. His life is so boring that he wanders the streets at night thinking of his happy childhood in Indiana and his dreams. One night Soloman sees a cafe called Westway Cafe. He is hungry so he goes inside and takes a seat. When his waiter comes he orders tomato soup and a balcony for his room, but he dosen't say the balcony out loud. When his waiter comes back, he gives him his soup and tells him to come back tomorrow, so he does. This time he orders two biscuits, some bacon, a large glass of grapefruit juice, and a fireplace, he doesn't say the fireplace out loud though. When his waiter comes back he gives him his order and tells him to come back again so he does. Many nights Soloman Singer goes to Westway Cafe carrying a dream and an order with him and when he ran out of dreams he just starts all over again. He finally learns his waiters name , Angel. See if his dreams come true by checking this book out at the library!

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.
