Spring Poetry Writing

Posted in bilingual, displays and deco, fifth grade, fourth grade, poetry, third grade, and writing

April is National Poetry Month! Third through fifth grades had fun in the Jackson Library writing Spring poems! Some wrote diamante poems about the atmosphere layers, some wrote acrostics in English, and some wrote Spanish acrostics. We used kite templates (see TPT links below) so we could post them on the library windows. The kids had fun writing the poems!

Be Proud of Your ‘Crown’

Posted in picture book lesson, and second grade

Last week in the Jackson Library, students read Hair Love/Amor de pelo and Crown. We discussed how styling our hair can be fun or frustrating and how we should be proud of our heritage and the physical characteristics that it gifts us.   The kids drew new hair designs on bookmarks before they checked out books.

Groundhog Day Fun

Posted in holiday, kindergarten, picture book lesson, and seasonal books

Last week in the Jackson Library, kindergarten had fun creating Groundhog Day puppets- see pattern below. First graders practiced listening and sequencing with Mr. Groundhog Wants the Day Off. Did you know that Plano ISD has a subscription to Tumblebooks? The Spanish version of this story is featured on Tumblebooks. Maybe Tumblebooks will add the English version of this story next year. As students listened to the story, they drew lines to match the gifts all of the animals gave to Mr. Groundhog for his big day.
