I just wanted to share this great opportunity with you. We use Epic! in our classroom and the students love it! Epic! is a digital library (app/website) that has tons of books at all reading levels and also has educational videos. Epic! is offering 3 Summer Months for $3 (rolls into a subscription).That is an amazing price - only $3 for the whole summer! You can use the Epic! app on an iPad or log in on a computer. Just an idea to keep your kids reading this summer.

Roller Coaster Fun
The fifth grade classes have been busy constructing roller coasters this week! We're nearing the end, with plans to finish and test them early next week. The entire roller coaster is made from cardstock paper and scotch tape. They have done such a great job so far, and I look forward to seeing their final projects!
A big thanks to the LIW PTO for their donation towards the supplies needed for this project! The kids are having a blast!
Field Day Fun!
It was a chillier day on Friday than the rest of the week, but Field Day was still a success and the rain managed to hold off until we were finished! The kids did a great job participating in the different stations and I think they had some fun along the way! Thank you, Mr. Birkel, for planning a fun afternoon at the track!
The students tested their coding abilities with our sphero minis. They used a Twister mat as they programmed the sphero to move from circle to circle. They did a great job and seemed to enjoy the challenge!
