Welcome to the 2012-2013 School Year!


Welcome to a new school year! Today is the first day I have scheduled classes. My students and I will read



Boy + Bot by Ame Dyckman and Dan Yaccarino


The Gingerbread Man Loose in the School by Laura Murray and Mike Lowery

First graders will go on a QR code savenger hunt and create gingerbread people for Colby Sharp's fourth graders.

I will booktalk




The Genius Files by Dan Gutman


Babymouse for President by Jennifer and Matthew Holm


The One and Only Ivan by Katherine Applegate


I will share where Ivan traveled this summer.


I will talk to my third graders about Ivan's passing.

Students will tour the library...

  24. Wow! Your library is amazing and gives me inspiration to think about ways to promote books even more to my students. I was wondering where you get a couple things. 1. Where do you get all of the posters like the Babymouse one? 2. Is there a place that you go to get the book summaries that you put under books you are promoting like the Smile picture? How do you attach them to the shelves?
