Bunny Fun

Posted in bilingual, first grade, and picture book lesson

Last week in the Jackson Library, first graders had fun reading a silly story.  During the video of the read aloud It’s Not Easy Being a Bunny (No es facil ser un conejito), the kids actively listen for why the bunny did not like being a bear, pig, etc. and drew a picture about what was bad about being that animal. There is no snake in the story, so they had to imagine what would be bad about being a snake and draw the bunny doing that in the last box.

We Don’t Eat Our Classmates – Los compañeros no se comen

Posted in books online, character education, picture book lesson, second grade, and social-emotional learning

Last week in the Jackson Library, both English and Spanish-speaking second graders had fun with a silly book! We watched the English and Spanish videos for the book, We Don’t Eat Our Classmates- Los compañeros no se comen and then drew a picture of something we can do to demonstrate being a good friend.

I Have a Dream 2021

Posted in fifth grade, holiday, poetry, and writing

This week in the Jackson Library, fifth graders learned about Dr. Martin Luther King’s powerful, peaceful words used to spur change for equality. I asked them to think about things going on in the world and what causes are important to them.  They wrote their own ‘I Have a Dream’ excerpts to convey ways they want the world to improve. Check out their poems below!

Martin’s Big Words 2021

Posted in apps, augmented reality, character education, fifth grade, fourth grade, holiday, technology, and third grade

Last week in the Jackson Library, I read excerpts of the Martin’s Big Words book to third and fourth graders. We discussed the power of his peaceful, persuasive words and how Martin’s use of words caused laws to change to promote equal rights in America. They used the augmented reality app, WeirdType to use some of Martin’s words as art.  Check out more about Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. and the WeirdType/Pokemon Go app designer below!
