Dear Basketball

Posted in fifth grade, fourth grade, third grade, and writing

February of this year, we read Kobe Bryant’s Dear Basketball poem (we used MrsBlewettELA’s TPT Questions) and watched the Oscar-winning short animated movie. Then, third through fifth grades wrote a “love letter” to SOMETHING they love. Check out their awesome work! Then, watch our video and check out the three-pointers!

Fun with Hair

Posted in apps, picture book lesson, and second grade

Second graders had fun discussing hair in the Jackson Library after reading the Bluebonnet book, Crown. We discussed the vocabulary and main ideas in the story; from the history of the do-rag/durag  to the theme of confidence. Then we discussed confidence and what that has to do with getting a haircut. Some kids created hair-dos using Toca Hair Salon during check out.
