Page Turner's Book Club

Wednesday morning in the Lewis and Clark library is a busy time. Second through fifth grade students meet to simply read for pleasure. We also blog, adopt shelves, and write book reviews.

A prototype and the plan!

This year I am being a stickler about requiring the kids to build from their plan and not veer off course.  Some tweaks may be necessary but they nee…
