Lewis and Clark's Annual Reading Adventure Nights

Each year I host two Reading Adventure Nights...one for 1st and 2nd grade and one for 3rd, 4th, and 5th grade. This year nearly 300 students stayed until 7:30 on two Friday nights to participate. During the evening, the kiddos went to five activity rooms, enjoyed a snack and pizza dinner, and listened to an amazing storyteller. A HUGE thank you goes out to parents who provided the paper products, soda, juice, and cookies for the night. Another HUGE shout out to the parent volunteers who helped organize the snacks and those who served pizza and drinks. Also, HUGE thanks to the LC staff members who stayed the night and volunteered their time running the classroom activities. Last, but surely not least, HUGE thanks to our LC PTA who pays for our storyteller and pizza...the big expenses of the evening. I could not offer these evenings without the help of ALL these groups.

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…
