A Message From Ms. Saenz

Hello there my sweet Cubs,

I am working on some Summer Virtual Libraries that I will be adding to our Library’s Blend Page, as well as introducing the 5 Book Dive of 2021!

The 5 Book Dive is a program started in 2016 from AISD librarians which encourages all students to read at least five books over the summer.

Research shows that reading just five books can protect students from the dreaded “summer slide” - the “drop” in reading levels that some students experience over the summer.

The 5BD encourages students to read any five books of their choice and provides lists of librarian-recommended titles for anyone who needs inspiration or maybe wants to try reading something a little different.

A printable 5BD bookmark is available on the website (on the "For Readers" page) and can serve as a reading log. Students who complete the log can get a $5 gift certificate from Book People (either in store or online). I will also have book marks available for you in the library if you would like to come grab one! :-)

Thank you! Please reach out to me if you have any questions!

Happy Reading,

Ms. Saenz

A Message From Ms. Schultz

Hello Bear Creek Families!

It's PE PLAY DAY - Minute To Win It Challenges!!! During PE class on Monday-Wednesday Zoomies and Roomies will participate in 8 different challenges. The slide deck will be available for 2nd-5th graders to work through the challenges at their own pace and order; they may also choose to work in virtual and in person groups. For Kinder and First Grade classes I will lead the whole group through each challenge and we will do them together :)

Our Lesson for Thursday-Tuesday will be a "Year in Review" PE Station Day. Remote learners will want to have equipment to use for jump rope, basketball, volleyball, and target shooting (basketball, soccer, hockey, golf).

Thank you for your continued support!

Ms. Schultz
