To finish out the school year with a reading focus, each year I issue an A to Z Mystery challenge to my third graders. The goal is to read each of the books in Ron Roy's A to Z mystery series. The kiddos below met that goal and were invited to a mystery party. When they came to the library for the reading celebration, they found that they needed to answer clues based on the A to Z mysteries and books in our library in order to open the box with the party inside! Each of those nine pieces of tape could only be removed if the clue was solved. I am happy to say they did it!
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.
