Spooky Story Writing
Posted in writing
Last week when I was substituting in fourth grade, one of the assignments was to write a spooky story! This is right up my alley! I read the bilingual class the opening and closing lines from several spooky stories in the library and they took off with their imagination! They wrote an opening line and ending for a scary story. We had fun!
Pre-K Cinco de Mayo Fun
Pre-K students tore strips of red and green paper to create Mexico flags for Cinco de Mayo. We listened to fun songs and watched flamenco dances.

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!

Both Pre-K classes were so excited to receive the new library books and stuffed animals from the Pre-K Zoo Buddies PISD Education Foundation grant! Each student will take his/her library book home to read to his/her new ‘zoo buddy’. The kids wrote and decorated thank you note cards in the library.
