Talk about sharing & creativity!

We celebrate International Dot Day every year at CCS. This year, we used the book The Dot by Peter H. Reynolds to discuss hopes & dreams, trying new things, and having the freedom to make our marks on the world around us. Traditionally celebrated around September 15-ish, Dot Day activities continued into this week and spread down the primary hallway. Library lessons for grades K-4 incorporated skills ranging from collaboration and personal expression to safe use of ipads. This just proves what I’ve known all along. The picture book format is the perfect package!

Older students have been busy learning about the new Dorothy Canfield Fisher Book Award nominees, and visiting the library whenever they need to. This averages out to about 50 or so students throughout the day, getting what they need from our library space.

And here is my pic of the week. These students are enjoying The Book With No Pictures by B.J. Novak. This is one of my favorites for practicing fluency skills, plus it just a joy to read aloud and share!
