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!

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

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…
