Guess Who Is Back...?
Our lovely Mrs. Pitts! She is back from here knee surgery and we are so happy! It just wasn't the same starting back to school without her.
We are working on introducing to kindergarten students our "Book Character Wall" We have several book characters depicted on our library wall (as you can see below). I enjoy sharing these characters and their stories with all of my friends.
From left to right; Koala Lou by Mem Fox, Cat In The Hat By Dr. Seuss, Curious George By H.A. Rey, Franklin By Paulette Bourgeois, "The Nook" From Dr. Seuss' One Fish, Two Fish, Red Fish, Blue Fish, Arthur by Marc Brown, Clifford By Norman Bridwell and Corduroy By Don Freeman.
Many of the students think I painted these wonderful characters on the wall but our previous, art teacher, Mrs. Holaday is the amazing artist that recreated these book characters for Kennedy kids, to enjoy.
Our First grade kiddo's read The Strega Nona books by Tomie DePaola. We enjoyed Strega Nona, Strega Nona Her Story, Big Anthony And The Magic Ring and Big Anthony His Story. We also learned facts about the author Tomie DePaola. We discussed some of the stories we had shared last year that we read of Tomie DePaola's and shared some of the other stories we have in the library that they may enjoy checking out.
