THE DAY THE CRAYONS QUIT by Drew Daywalt
Students are participating in makerspaces this year. This student made a book mark that says "Reading is my super power. Is reading your power too?"
East Side Elementary participated in International Dot Day. We read THE DOT by Peter Reynolds and each student was able to make their mark. "Make your mark and see where it takes you" was the theme for this lesson. Students were encouraged to not only make a mark on paper but in their life as well.
These students are completing an inquiry based research lesson using our database subscription to Kids InfoBits. Databases allow students to search for reliable information in a safe online environment.
