Love That Dog

Have you ever had an interest in poetry? Well this is a really good poetry book by Sharon Creech called Love That Dog. It is about a boy who wants nothing to do with poetry until his teacher tells him how to write poetry and he fell in love with it. This book is written in poem form but tells a story as well. WARNING! This book has a really sad part, but the rest of the book is all fun and games. The main character's name is Jack, but without his dead dog Sky or Jack's teacher, his life would be 100 times different. I think you should read this book for the following reasons, for pleasure, if you want a short read, and you want to learn a thing or two about poetry. I hope you will check out Love That Dog now that you have read my review.

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…
