We have been reading these short biographies about famous people throughout history and this week we focused on Martin Luther King Jr. America’s segregated history wasn’t that long ago, and because of people like King, we have progressed a long way. He paid for his beliefs with his life, and I think he’s important enough to be discussed and honored for his accomplishments.
Tonight at 6:00 is game night and check out at the Smith Library. I will be there playing some Sushi Go! Come on down.
Today we finished the BFG by Roald Dahl. It’s an adorable story about a little girl and the only friendly giant in the world becoming friends and stopping the terrible man eating giants from gobbling up human beans.
To celebrate finishing the first Harry Potter book, we tried some Every Flavor Beans. Ear wax, black pepper, and barf are pretty accurately depicted.
We are reading Charlotte’s Web. It’s a classic by EB White, who also wrote Stuart Little and The Trumpet of the Swan. It’s honestly one of the cutest books I’ve ever read and the kids adore it. We are reading the chapter today, so it would be a good thing to talk to your kids about how they felt.
After reading The Kissing Hand by Audrey Penn, the students made handprints with a heart kiss to show their parents how brave they were on the first day of school and remind them of how much they are loved!
Today our class made a story using Storybird.com. The class chose pre-made illustrations and then together, became the author. It was a great collaboration activity! Click on the link below to view.

Today we read the story It Looked Like Spilt Milk by Charles G. Shaw. The story is about all of the different things that clouds can look like. The students created their own clouds after the story!
Yesterday we celebrated Dr. Seuss’ birthday by reading some of his books and drawing characters!
