Feb 8-12, RABs

This week classes came to the Library for a book exchange and then went to visit our Christian Book Fair brought to us by Lighthouse Books.

While many students in grade 5 went on field trips, the ones that stayed at school were read the following book:
Somebody Loves You, Mr. Hatch! by Eileen Spinelli

This book shows the powerful way love can transform a whole neighborhood, even if it was by accident.

RABs January 25-29, 2010

Kindergarten: Russell the Sheep by Rob Scotton

Grade 1: Library Lil by Suzanne Williams

Grade 2: Young Authors Day at Pokeweed Public School

Grade 3: Stanley at Sea by Linda Bailey

Grade 4: The Final Game by William Roy Brownridge. Instead of a read alound, in one class we talked about the ideas on the We Are a Team Poster; about taking things that don’t belong to us and what kinds of things happen when we do.

Grade 5: Timmerman Was Here by Colleen Sydor (the ending reminds me of the Johnny Appleseed story and also a little bit of Bone Button Borscht/Stone Soup stories.)  About leaving a place better than when you found it.
