To celebrate our book fair, we'll dress up like hippies on Friday, February 26. What fun!

What Does the Fox Read?

In December our library was decorated with artwork from our students. They imagined a book that a fox would like to read, then they created a title, and illustrated the front cover. You can see a few highlights in this video!

Third Grade Research

In January, our third grade students worked hard on their research project, Rapid Changes to the Earth's Surface. They used books and electronic resources to find answers to questions about natural disasters. Then they wrote a script and created a video using the Tellagami app.

Bluebonnet Voting

Our third, fourth, and fifth graders had the opportunity to read 5 of the 20 books on the Bluebonnet List and vote for the winner.

We had:

  • 48 voters in third grade
  • 36 voters in fourth grade, and
  • 15 voters in 5th grade

The winner at Fox Run Elementary was Mountain Dog, by Margarita Engle. You can watch a book trailer for Mountain Dog by clicking here.

Students all over the state of Texas voted, too, and the winner for our state was When The Beat Was Born, by Laban Carrick Hill. You can watch a book trailer for When The Beat Was Born by clicking here.

Congratulations, Bluebonnet readers!
