I’m kicking off the change in weather to more autumnal temperatures with stories celebrating Halloween, including my very own jack-o-lantern! I am reciting a beloved story of a spider and a mouse who live together in a pumpkin throughout the winter to grades preK through three, as well as some other favorite picture books and an early chapter book!
Fourth and fifth grade are still very much enjoying the DCF books we are reading together. Ask your students about the plot, especially the fifth graders, as the story takes place in 1979-1980 and there are some pretty throwback pop culture references (think The Brady Bunch and Three’s Company).
STEAM time is still going great! Next week the students will have time to reflect on each other’s work, provide positive feedback, and then reassess the strength and usefulness of their house. Keep up with the STEAM design process here!
I hope your students are enjoying library this week as much as I am!
