Saving Audie: A Pit Bull Puppy Gets A Second Chance

Can you imagine a puppy out at night, hungry, cold, and dying? That is what happened to Audie. Finally some people rescued the abused dogs including Audie. He was brought to a shelter but he did not have his name yet. The dogs were very lonely, they hardly got any exercise. After a lot of waiting, he went with Nicole and Steve. They gave him the name Dutch. But that was not his permanent home. Finally, he got a home with Linda and Bill. One day Linda noticed Dutch limping. She took him to the vet and they had bad news. Dutch had bad knees. He could not be an agility dog until they were fixed. Linda and Bill wanted Dutch to have a more suitable name. So they named him after a soldier in WWII named Audie. What do you think will happen? Read to find out!

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…
