October Already!

I hope everyone’s having a great school year! This year all students kindergarten – 5th grade have media one day a week for the first semester. Each class comes to the media center once a week. We’re learning how to search for books in the library and how to use computers properly. Students in grades kindergarten – 1 check out 1 book each week, students in grades 2 – 5 may check out two books.

I hope everyone is having a great school year! Thanksgiving has passed, and winter break will be here soon. Some of my elementary students have been learning to code on Code.org or Kodable. Middle school students have been checking out many great books.

Many of the websites that I use with my classes can be found in the class links, on the right side of this page. Click, learn, and enjoy!

It’s been a great year!

Finishing up the last week of school and looking at how much progress we’ve made! I hope everyone has a great summer. Enjoy time with your friends and family, rest, relax, and read!

If you have any questions over the summer, just send me an email. All of the links that we used in class can be found in the list on the right, so be sure to use them to learn and enjoy.

Have a great summer everyone!

At Henry Ford we studied the book The Inventor’s Secret and learned about Thomas Edison and Henry Ford. They were both great inventors, and their secret to success was Keep At It! Never give up, if you have an idea or dream, just keep working at it. We then made illustrations of some inventions that would be great to create. There were many awesome ideas!
