It's that busy time of year here in Reed & the Library, when after Spring Break you suddenly realize there is such a short time left in school & SO much to do!!!
It's also such a fun time of year as everyone's spirits begin to lift with the weather change, new blossoms on the trees, the smell of fresh cut grass in the air & Summer on the horizon (keep an eye out for my annual Summer Reading Challenge!)
To celebrate the season this year, we read a Nonfiction text for a fresh perspective on the importance of bees & the plants around us which was incredibly inspiring & a good reminder of how important it is to nurture every creature no matter how small.
Each class also planted a Dwarf Sunflower seed which sprouted over the Spring Break (thanks to some help from Mrs Corsiglia who kindly plant-sat; as well as lot's of sunshine on my front porch!). If these continue to grow as successfully as they started, we should be able to plant them right here in our Reed garden.
Now that we're back from Spring Break, Kindergarten and First Grade are launching into their Digital Citizenship program and Second Grade are reviewing their Fiction/Nonfiction skill set in preparation for Library exploration at Bel Air next year.
Watch this space for more to come on both these units and our soon to be launched Summer Reading Challenge!
Welcome to the on-line home of Reed Library! I'm so pleased you came to visit & hope you keep coming back to read my blog on our latest happenings, new books & our exciting digital citizenship program!
