Pumpkins have been pouring in the Fielder Library Pumpkin Patch! There are characters from all genres of books – from Pete the Cat to Harry Potter to the Pigeon to Junie B. Jones! Check back all week as the photos are added to the “pumpkin extravaganza” tab.
This week the 3-5 grades worked with the app Pic Collage during library. We sorted the characteristics of 4 different genres – realistic fiction, science fiction, historical fiction, and fantasy. It is a free app that works on any platform – Ipad, Samsung Galaxy, Kindle Fire, etc.
Next week K-2 will get to work with some apps as well!
This Thursday, October 9th we will be having our second Bluebonnet Read aloud of the year. Come at 7:45 to hear Lester’s Dreadful Sweaters. All ages/grades are welcome!
