In honor of Dr. Seuss’ birthday, first grade dedicated two weeks to
reading many of his stories. First graders read at home each night to
build their own reading graph in the hallway using “Cat In The Hat” as
a theme to see how tall each student's hat could get. We ended our
Dr. Seuss reading adventure by inviting parents to join us for an
afternoon of crafts, stories, and a snack.
Fifth grade students researched a famous person in history using books from the library along with their chromebooks. They presented their information along with their famous person display “bottle buddy” to the elementary school. The presentations were judged in three categories most creative display, most creative bottle buddy, and most informational.
