We are so proud of our Chase Street Tree Frogs for their super summer reading!
A big thanks to everyone–students, families, volunteers, and Chase Street staff–who helped make our book fair a smashing success!
People often ask me what the most popular books are at the book fair, so here’s a list of this week’s bestsellers!
Thanks to all who helped set up! This was the biggest book fair we’ve ever put together! Teachers will preview the fair on Monday, and I’ll look forward to seeing all 485 students for class previews on Tuesday! (Whew!)
Why do we love book fair so much? Read today’s post to find out! We can’t wait for Tree Frogs and their families to visit our fall Scholastic book fair next week.
Seeing kids’ eyes light up as they scanned their brand new library cards for the first time was an experience I’ll never forget!
Did you know that September is Library Card Sign-up Month? Our school is will host a very special event at the Athens-Clarke County Public Library later this month to celebrate!
2nd grade students read the picture book biography Pablo Neruda: Poet of the People, then examined snippets of poems from his book Odes to Common Things, and finally wrote their own odes to common things using a variety of household objects.
Last week, our 1st grade classes wrote their first poems of the season with the help of ReadWriteThink’s acrostic poem generator (and some organizational assistance from Padlet.com).
