Oh my goodness, it is offically the end of the 1st nine weeks. Wahoo! In honor of our short week and our busy 1st nine weeks we celebrated in the library. We checked out books on Monday and shared stories on the carpet. On Wednesday every class played board games.
We had so much fun playing Candyland in the library. I was kind of surprised at how many friends have never played a board game. Heads up out there, the students loved it! We had so much fun.
We did have a few that were upset that they didn't win. But another learning experience to explain about being a good sport. All in all in was a great week.
I hope everyone got a chance to come in and visit their students, classroom teacher and find out just how much your kiddo is learning at Kennedy this school year. I am so impressed with all of their growth. It is probably one of my favorite perks of working in the library, watching the students there learn and grow. It never ceases to amaze me.
Here are some pics of our game play:
An update on our military donations: Our baked goods were collected by staff along with letters from teachers and even some from students. We added this to our 18 boxes of donations and shipped it all out on Tuesday afternoon. A great big thank you to Katie Hinkle and Tanya Hagedorn for all their help. This took a school wide effort and was a huge success. Can't wait to hear back from our Military Heroes!

This week I have been reading What Alice Forgot by: Lianne Moriarty
Can I say that I absolutely love, love, loved this book. Thought provking and a page turner. If I were to write an adult fiction book this is a premise I would love to write about.
