The Plano Education Foundation prize patrol just visited the Jackson Library! I won the grant I submitted for The Masked Writer: Using Mentor Texts as Springboards for Writing and the group grant I co-authored with Connie Matthews for more EV3 LEGO Mindstorm robots. Woo hoo! So excited!
Storyteller Toni Simmons visited Jackson Elementary last week and we all had so much fun! She told different stories to each assembly: kindergarten, fifth grade, third and fourth grade, and second and third grade. We heard Abiyoyo’s songs, Pedro’s trickster tale, a caps for sale tale, and we learned why dogs chase cats. Fun!
Check out highlights of her performances:
Today live on JagTube, Principal Cockrell received a pie in the face from our student council president. She took on this dare when she challenged the students of Jackson Elementary to donate over 1,000 cans to Minnie’s Food Pantry in Plano. The kids brought in 1,524 cans! Check out the video of her pie to the face! What bravery!
We are so excited! Real live author Ame Dyckman saw one of our Tweets showing a lesson we created last week about her You DON’T Want a Unicorn! book and mailed full color bookmarks to all of Jackson Elementary! Wow! She also sent us her most recent paperback, Misunderstood Shark! We can’t wait to read it! Yay!
