Are you going to be in 4th or 5th grade next year? Do you love reading? Do you have a good memory? Do you like competing? Well, if you answered yes to these questions then the book club is a perfect fit for YOU!
Don’t be shy! If you love to read join the book club next year. The book club will enter the Helen Ruffin Reading Bowl. It’s a fun reading completion where student get to participate in six rounds of questions all pertaining to books! The book list is currently out on their website (listed below). The first book we will be discussing is The Wild Robot by Peter Brown. If you are interested, please read this book over the summer!
Today we discussed how fairy tales can change or have different versions depending on the time period and culture. Then the students got to make their own mini fairy tale using Puppet Pals on the iPads. What they came up with was adorable and creative.
This week we talked about Earth Day and the importance of keeping our environment nice for future generations. We read the book Ants in Your ants, Worms in Your Plants! By Diane deGroat. In the story, each student discussed ways to help the environment. So, in class each student made a mini poster that persuaded others to help out the environment too!
The spring book fair is coming up the week of May 15th! We are always looking for volunteers to help students find books, work at the cash register, or assist with set up/break down. If you have young (pre-school aged) children, just bring them along! They can go on the computers and play some educational games while you help at the book fair. We appreciate our parent volunteers!
