This week and last week we learned about George Washington and other presidents.
Kindergarteners are having fun in the library with centers! At one center they are making a book, American Treasure. This booklet has pictures of some of our presidents as well as some famous places in America.
Prek is wrapping up their unit, Learning How to Stay Healthy, with fun centers including a coloring sheet showing students how to stay well!
First grade is making a coloring booklet, All About the Presidents of the United States. Each page has a fun fact about a president. Did you know the teddy bear was named after President Theodore Roosevelt who refused to shoot a small bear during a hunting trip?
Second graders have three centers to choose from to learn about our presidents, Four in a Row, A Presidential Timeline, and American Treasure coloring booklet.
Third, fourth, and fifth graders are learning about the Culper Spy Book and are creating a sentence using the book. When they are finished they will switch with another group and decipher the code!
We have a book club that meets twice a week. Right now our book club is learning how to write code using code.org. They are practicing for the next project; making robots move!! How cool is that?!?!
Today, we had author/illustrator Jeff Crosby come and talk with our 2nd graders. He had the students participate while he read his latest book, The Rockabilly Goats Gruff. Ths students had so much fun and learned about fractured fairy tales and onomatopoeia. They also made a fractured fairy tale together! Thank you Jeff Crosby!! You Rock!!!
There is never a dull moment in the library. We started out today with first and second grade students working in groups using Kidspiration to make a diagram about the rules and book care in the library. A great way for kids to review and practice their computer skills at the same time!
Third through fifth graders started their week coding. They used code.org. I have never heard the library so quiet from students concentrating! They had so much fun!!
