In our library, we have a makerspace area where students can work independently on a variety of challenges. Below you will see a few pictures of what our 5th graders have created. The challenge was to create some type of structure with their materials. Can you guess what they made??

40 Book Challenge and Beyond!!

This year, BBIS students are being challenged to read at least 40 books from a variety of different genres. As they read a book, they will keep track of their thinking and record the genre. Once they have finished their 40 books, they will turn in the required tracking documents to their ELA teacher. Once it has been approved, students will be invited to the 40 Book Challenge Party at the end of the school year. Students will have until April 29, 2022 to turn in their 40 book challenge documents. Ready, Set, GO!!!!
