Third, Fourth, and Fifth Grade Reading Adventure Night

WOW! 170 third, fourth, and fifth grade students stayed after school until 7:30pm on Friday, February 11th to participate in our annual Reading Adventure Night! The kids participated in 5 different activities, listened to an amazing storyteller, and enjoyed pizza. Huge thanks go out to Mr. Palmer and Mr. Nelson for staying during the evening and helping throughout. I so appreciate all the staff members who ran an activity room, the parents who served snacks and pizza, the families who sent in donations, and our FABULOUS LC PTA for financially supporting the evening. I also wish to give a HUGE shoutout to Ray at CiCi's Pizza for giving us a great deal and delivering all 56 pizzas to us! We all had a blast...the evidence is below!

We Are Off And Running

We are entering our 2nd full week of school and I have seen each class two times. So far we have reviewed our Missouri Reading Award Programs, checked out for the first time, learned how to access digital materials at home, set up Google Classrooms, and become familiar with Overdrive ebooks.  Mrs. Haynes met with each class before their second checkout (first with their classroom teacher) and chatted with the kiddos about checkout expectations and a couple of other new things she is working on.  She is so good about being proactive instead of reactive to what we know happens each year in our library.
Tomorrow each grade level will begin their first maker unit.  These units will include inquiry, mini lessons as necessary to teach/review note-taking, selecting best sources, questioning, citing sources, locating materials in our library and on our website, and instruction/exploration on databases and apps we will be using.

This is our plan...
Fifth graders are designers and will begin worki…

The Power of A Book

I recently finished the book, Appleblossom The Possum by Holly Goldberg Sloan (the author of Counting by 7's)  Let me start by saying I will read anything that H. G. Sloan writes.  What an amazing author!  Appleblossom is the sweetest little possum you ever did read about and she totally changed my feelings about possums.  They just don't seem quite so nasty anymore:).  Just look at that cute little possum waving to you on the cover below.  She was drawn by Holly Goldberg Sloan's husband, Gary A. 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…
