Magazines Rock!

Our second graders were just introduced to our entire selection of magazines. They were thrilled to have access to ALL of our magazines. Some favorites included Lego, Dog and Cat Fancy, American Girl, KidZone, Ranger Rick, SI for Kids, and of course American Girl.

Several 3rd graders have qualified to vote by reading at least 4 KC3 nominees.

Keep up the GREAT reading LC readers!

Their interests and choice of genre is driving this instruction. The essential question for fifth grade is...How do you define yourself as a reader?
