We had a great start last week!
Carmen Oliver visited with our kindergarten and first grade classes on Monday, April 3rd. She shared her childhood reading life, inspiration for writing, and strategies for buddy reading.
Tuesday, April 4th, was National School Librarians Day. Ms. Margocs and Mrs. Woodul were treated to cookies, banners, and dozens of cards. Thank you to all of our teachers, students, parents, and administration for supporting our library program, and for your kind gifts and words for Ms. Margocs and Mrs. Woodul!
This week, we are reading A Poem in Your Pocket in celebration of National Poetry Month. A Poem in Your Pocket Day is celebrated on April 27th this year!
Today, the second grade classes visited with Emma Virjan and learned how to draw a pig in a wig! Pictures will be posted next week, along with news about our Armadillo voting.
Third graders are learning about effective keyword searching, fourth graders are filling out applications to be on the broadcast team next year, and fifth graders are discovering the cool tools that our Gale resources have to offer to help their research projects.
Next week, Ms. Margocs will be attending the Texas Library Association's Annual Conference! Expect lots of learning posts to arrive soon on this blog.
Enjoy your holiday weekend; take some time to share a book or a poem together!
