Little Free Library

This morning our second grade class went to Mrs. Van Nice's house.  She had a Little Free Library in front of her house.  We got to pick out a book for FREE and keep it!  After we finish reading our book we can take it back and trade for a different one.  If we love it and want to keep it that is okay too.  We can also get another book from her if we visit again with our family. 

SD and RD choose a book from the Little Library.
After choosing books we took a picture of everyone with their books.

Mrs. Van Nice spoiled us rotten with books, bookmarks and yummy treats.
Thank you Mrs. Van Nice! Happy Thanksgiving Mrs. Van Nice!

Turkey-ish Drawings

After reading this wonderful book, Ish by Peter H. Reynolds, students drew Turkey-ish Turkeys!  If you are looking for a way to help your child or children you work with be confident when they draw this is the book for you.  It is a wonderful story about a little boy whose brother makes fun of his drawing.  A surprise awaits him as he chases his little sister into her room after she grabs one of his crumpled drawings.  This book will be on everyone's favorites list!

Students used oil pastels to create these masterpieces!
