WHOOSH!

Lonnie Johnson is an African-American Inventor and NASA scientist whose invention of the Super-Soaker makes him a great subject of an all-school read at the end of the year. Upper School students participating in a mentoring program will be teaming up with us to create a perfect final chapter to an imperfect school year.


Lonnie Johnson es un inventor afroamericano y científico de la NASA cuya invención del Super-Soaker lo convierte en un gran tema de una lectura para toda la escuela al final del año.

Read the book...or listen to it!

The book is available through Epic!, the online reading platform your students have been using during distance learning.

Listen to it too!

But there's more! Chris Barton is making Paul Cuffee a video recording of him reading his book and talking about the artwork. The video will be available only to Paul Cuffee, and it's a great way to understand the book if you're not there yet as a reader.


¡Pero hay más! Chris Barton está haciendo una grabación en video para Paul Cuffee de él leyendo su libro y hablando sobre la obra de arte. El video estará disponible solo para Paul Cuffee, y es una excelente manera de entender el libro si aún no está ahí como lector.

Next, interact with the author!

Chris Barton will be taking questions from our students and creating a recorded virtual author visit. Students can send questions to Mrs. Lehmuller or their teachers by June 5. He'll provide a recorded visit for our students to watch.


Chris Barton responderá preguntas de nuestros estudiantes y creará una visita virtual del autor. Los estudiantes pueden enviar preguntas a la Sra. Lehmuller o sus maestros antes del 4 de junio. Él proporcionará una visita grabada para que nuestros estudiantes la vean.

Then... learn along with your student!

Teachers will be introducing some activities that are water-based. Make it a family time. Here are some videos to give you ideas.
