A Slithery Situation!

Savannah, the ball python, is back! This is her fourth visit to the Huebner Elementary Library and has become quite a popular guest!

You might ask, why would I bring a snake into the library?

Well, because it's AWESOME!

Plus, the kids love learning about snakes (always a popular check-out) and it's so cool when they can see what they are learning about live.

Also, I want my students to develop an appreciation for all living things - even the ones they think are icky or scary.

Another added benefit is many students who believe they are afraid of snakes have found the courage to pet Savannah. I think my favorite comment I hear often is that she feels so scaley! Of course she does - because she's covered in scales. They have faced a fear and found that it wasn't as scary as they thought it would be. Of course, we talk about the type of snake Savannah is and why it is safe to pet her with me. We shouldn't pet every snake we come across.

We are so privileged to get to borrow Savannah for two weeks each year from our Regional Living Science Center.

Texas Hero Research

Fourth graders had the opportunity to become a Texas Hero this month while working on their research project. Students accessed a variety of print and digital resources using iPads, Chromebooks, and Biographies. In May, they will transform into their Texan and give a short speech telling what makes them a great leader at our annual Texan Celebrity Ball.
