Riders are Readers (February)

Vanishing Coin is the Bluebonnet Winner at Woodstone

32 students in 3rd, 4th and 5th grade were invited to the Bluebonnet Voting Celebration on Friday. These students read over 5 of the Bluebonnet books with some reading close to all 20! Our students chose Vanishing Coin by Kate Egan as their favorite. We are anxiously awaiting the results of the rest of the state.

Makerspace Update

We introduced a new round of makerspace activities in January. Students had a choice of building an art bot, coding, finger knitting or making fraction pictures. I was so impressed with how fast some students picked up the finger knitting. I STILL can not do it very well. Click here to access the Makerspace page and then click on the different STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, Math) areas for the resources specific to that topic. I need to be better about taking pictures. I get so wrapped up in what the kids are doing, I forget!

January Recap

4th graders were introduced to the Battle of the Books. This year the winners of our school battle will get to compete against the other 4th grades in NEISD in the District battle in May. 3rd grade spent the first two weeks of January researching different forces of nature. Each class spent a whole day in the library researching and creating pages for a class graphic novel about their force of nature.
