Reference Skills, Reading Rock Stars, the Return of Poetry Party, and Rap a Tap Tap

This week we have been practicing our reference skills. 4th and 5th grade has been locating key places in the atlas. Our 2nd and 3rd graders have been using guide words to locate definitions.

Our Kindergarten and I have enjoyed reading about tap-dancing legend Bill Robinson, otherwise known as Bojangles in Leo and Diane Dillon’s Rap a Tap Tap. We all agree- there’s no better way to start your day than dancing. Afterwards we enjoyed dancing along to Bojangles videos we discovered online.

Last Friday over a hundred of our students were recognized as Reading Rock Stars.  We are very proud of all our students who practice their reading at home.

And yesterday (Wednesday) marked the return of Poetry Party in the Media Center.  We decorated our poetry journals and began writing and reciting our first poems.
