I love it when thid grade brings down their pumpkin pal projects to display in the library. Aren't they fantastic! Every student in third grade designs and creates a pumpkin to look like a character from a book that they've read.
Taylor's fifth annual Vocabulary Parade will be taking place on Thursday, November 11. Parents are welcome to join us in the cafeteria to view the parade. Every Taylor student and staff member will be dressed as a word for the parade. Look for information that will begin coming home in this week's Thursday folders. When you decide on the word you want to portray, don't forget to turn in your word form to your teacher.
Fourth grade headed out to the Storytelling Festival on Friday, October 8. I tried to take pictures of the storytellers but we were too far away from them for the pictures to turn out. We had a great time listening to all of the wonderful storytellers. The highlight for me (and many of the students that I asked) was hearing Willy Claflin. He is the author of The Uglified Ducky and he brought Maynard Moose with him. He was hilarious! I am so glad that we got to hear him in person. I am ordering more Maynard Moose books for the library for sure!
Our fifth grade book club met for the first time yesterday. It was a lot of fun! We have seven student members, plus Mrs. Howeth and me. The students were excited to find out what our first book to read together would be. The answer: The Homework Machine by Dan Gutman!
